While two uniformed guards idly chat and sing the day away, animals carry on philosophical dialogues about confounding existential issues they face. A beautiful pencil-drawn animation style gives this esoteric short a fairytale feel, where the only truly answerable question posed is how to make great apple sauce—”you just have to wash, peel, cut, and mash it”.
