This short animation film tells the ancient story of the signs of the zodiac. Each sign represents certain feelings and/or experiences, depicted in the film by two figures and two birds. The film starts with the sign of Aries and ends with Pisces. Whereas Van Cuijlenborg made his previous films by drawing directly on the footage, this time he made his drawings directly on the computer.
