The animals are acting strangely. When a very pregnant Itto is separated from her husband and his family during a mysterious paranormal event, she must navigate the starkly gorgeous Moroccan countryside alone to reunite with them. Along the way, she witnesses a series of more and more bizarre behavior from the animals around her: birds, dogs, ants, and finally, humans. At once intimate and surreal, this enigmatic apocalyptic story taps into themes of religion, class, and our very humanity.
