Storyline

The heroes of this animated film - two women and two men - in the morning left each separately from the house and began to intensely search for something in the black and white and ugly world, full of rudeness and aggression, bursts and bureaucracy. A woman tried to get apples, a man - a suit with white trousers, another hero - some kind of official paper with permission. As a result, with humiliation and loss, having delivered what they needed, the four of them gathered in the garden and settled down in Édouard Manet's "Breakfast on the Grass" composition.
