"★★★★ – brilliantly weird Estonian stop-motion" – Guardian
"If Jan Svankmeyer and the South Park crew launched a joint takeover of Aardman Animation, they might come up with something as surreal and puerile as this madcap, very funny, yet somehow sweet-natured Estonian stop-motion comedy" – Sight and Sound.
Three city-dwelling children are sent to their Grandfather’s farm for the summer. Bored and unused to the rural way of life, they take pity on a cow tied up in a barn and set it free.
Now they have only 24 hours to find and milk the rogue bovine before its exponentially expanding udders explode and unleash the “Lactopalypse”!
Gloriously unhinged stop-motion animation from Estonian duo Oskar Lehemaa and Mikk Mägi in their feature debut.
