Subtle and occasionally tragicomic documentary. This psychological search for the question whether we have pets to compensate a lack of human contact is well-balanced, but sometimes also just beastly funny.
Do we need animals to fill the void that should really be filled by people? To what extent do we project our own deprivation and longing on these sweet pets? All the protagonists in this documentary are indirectly afraid of being rejected and find safety and unconditional love in their animal(s). We observe these relationships and follow them in their steps to overcome their anxieties and insecurities and step into the world of humans more.
