Real excitement is always kind of out of focus. Unfortunately. All joy lies buried in a blind rush and hasty perceptions. That's why I never got my eyes lasered.

Like a dream in the morning mist, a mighty ox emerges from the rain-soaked earth dragging the remnants of an old cart. A prisoner of its yoke, the great beast pulls its heavy load, carrying with it a greedy and angry nation of people. An allegory of mankind heading for disaster, the film is a tragic vision inspired by the fourth movement of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition.

Craboom is the onomatopoeic sound of a strong explosion. An animatio where daily life elements turn into imagery symbols. In a paper world populated by two-dimensional characters, the interference of a disruptive vision breaks the “inexorable running” of a clock, blasting the harmony of a normal family life into small lonelinesses.
