Short animation in which cartoon character Sammy, a chirpy orange, lives in his own perfect dream world. But when change lies in wait, Sammy will have to accept that even a fantasy is not eternal.
Sammy is a typical cartoon character: a gleeful orange who wakes up every day in good spirits before travelling to work in a candy factory. Here, to absolutely everyone’s delight, he rectifies the same machine problems day in day out. Every day elapses in the same fashion, which greatly pleases creature of habit Sammy. But life inevitably brings changes. When his dream world is suddenly disrupted, Sammy will have to learn to accept that change is part and parcel of life, in this short animation.
