Synopsis

A strapping lumberjack heads into the forest with his chainsaw to fell some trees to be used for some unknown industrial purpose, but Nature decides to get her own back. Calamity befalls the logger, and he finds himself pinned under a giant tree as a result of his own handiwork. Dramatic animation transforms the man into a series of panicked animals that try to escape their fate – eventually reminding us that we humans, too, are subject to the cycle of life.
