Next time someone breaks your heart, be wary. There’s a chance you may be turned into farm animal, chased by a giant furnace on legs and a man with a plunger who wants to steal your liver. That’s a lot to deal with, but to top it off, your landlady will still want you to pay your rent on time. In this quirky animated feature from director Hyung-yun Chang, these complications are just a small part of the fun.

A rejected musician suddenly becomes a cow, and his plaintive song lures a non-working satellite down to earth. An enchanted roll of toilet paper accidentally turns the satellite into a rocket girl and together the three friends try to set things right. This unforgettably surreal film explores the importance of connection as we face life’s variety of challenges and fully exploits the comic potential of its unusual plot. We can’t all have lives with as many visual gags, rocket arms, and helpful bathroom products as our protagonists, but we can live vicariously while the moment lasts. You’ll be glad you did.
