A taxidermist, a deer farmer and a zoology museum worker live in an area where the line between reality and artificiality has almost become imperceptible. While the dead animals compete for the most lively postures and the most real look in their eyes, the humans keep trying to stop time and bring life back to things from which it has long been absent.
