It’s the year 2018 in an alternative universe where planets are made of kale, kombucha and beer. On the kombucha planet, a struggling artist receives a lucrative commission offer from the government ‘weird heads’ located on the beer planet. This awesome digital animation is an entertaining commentary on artistic integrity and post-colonial oppression.
