A taxidermist, a deer farmer and a museum worker live in the environment in which the line between reality and artificiality has become imperceptible. It's a world where not only deer and boars but also plastic alligator mannequins are being hunted. While stuffed animals compete for the most alive-looking posture and legitimate gaze, the man tries to stop the time and bring back life to the things in which there is no life anymore.
