A cowboy and a female astronaut meet in a bar … It starts like a joke but turns out to be the story of a man who hopes to get more out of life than just ordinary routine. An unimposing office clerk is looking for a new reality in the cowboy life – a sheriff’s star instead of a tie, a horse instead of a crowded public service bus, a wooden cabin in the prairie instead of endless skyscraper canyons. After some initial difficulties it becomes clear that this is the only life for him. Childhood dreams come true in the light, dreamy pencil sketches of this animation. A final farewell to the daily grind: Yee-haw!
