Jung and Maria are sweethearts enjoying their blossoming love in an innocent world. But their starry-eyed paradise is imperiled when the malignant Little Jesus kidnaps Maria’s body to build his nefarious temple of pain! Jung’s heart is broken, and his quest to find love and inner peace in an apocalyptic hellscape begins. Along the way, he befriends a motley band of characters, each one searching for a way to survive in landscape devoid of love.
French animation team Bobbypills crafts a wholly original world, packed with inventive characters, absurd story twists and a wicked sense of humor.

A young praying mantis follows in his father’s many footsteps and moves to the big city to become a police officer.

But when he’s assigned a partner with a history of drinking and bad police work, the sparks fly and both characters get more than they bargained for.
Director Alexis Beaumont’s work with French animation team Bobbypills is reminiscent of buddy cop films taken to their logical extreme.
