If you reverse the roles of humans and animals, you end up in a world where animals take their pet humans to the human vet. And you realise how oddly we treat animals.

This is what the world would look like if humans and animals swapped places: naked ladies are lying in a meadow; an old grandpa is snoozing on a heater, while a fat man rolls up on a beach and throws up plastic. Animals affectionately take their pet humans to the human vet and try to save people who have washed ashore. But in other instances they treat people just as disrespectfully and mercilessly as vice versa. This animated short holds up a mirror to the viewer, showing the love people feel for animals, as well as the suffering they cause them, consciously or unconsciously. Made within the framework of Ultrakort.
