Great fun (and family friendly despite the unfortunate translation of its original title Ohen’ Odinokiy Petuh), Russian animator Leonid Shmelkov’s short tells the story of a chicken whose routine is interrupted. To wit:
It is a hard day for the very lonely cock. Perhaps tomorrow it’ll be better. Who knows? Anyway, it can’t get any worse. Or can it? Not only is the production of eggs at stake for the very lonely cock, in this strange world everything is getting stranger by the minute.
