Director Statement

Since I was a child I have loved animals, especially cows. I would like this film to make people think about their relations with animals. Now an interspecies chauvinism is observed when charming home slackers, cats and dogs, are put on pedestal of human adoration and so-called agricultural animals face horrible tortures because of the human greed. Cows are smart, kind and beautiful creatures. That is their kindness that played a wicked joke in the modern world with them. Due to cows we get most useful food products but people seldom think about the facts that cows are personalities deserving love and respect.
