Tiny live chicks served as dessert disappear into the greedy mouths of wild predators – you’ll only find this at the festival of carnivores in Wolfenberg. The place is presided over by the Prince, a bored old wolf with perfect manners but a cruel disposition. Loulou, a friendly young wolf who refuses to eat meat, has come here in search of his mother. He’s accompanied by his loyal pal Tom, a white rabbit. The pair is not made at all welcome. Sinister figures in trench coats and dark glasses monitor their every move and Tom lives in fear of being preyed upon by these hungry beasts. In their bid to solve the mystery of the disappearance of Loulou’s mother, the two friends find themselves caught up in dangerous adventures in which they survive breakneck chases and kidnappings. Revolutionaries are fighting against the Prince’s bloody regime, an attractive vixen causes quite a bit of confusion and one mysterious individual pulls all the strings. A bizarre, witty and ironic animation with plenty of allusions to real life which will definitely appeal to both children and adults alike.
