The 6th mass extinction of animal species, a crisis that has decimated 50% of the world’s wildlife over the last 50 years. Our lifestyle has not only generated climate change but has also destroyed many of the earth’s natural resources and millions of animal species that are nonetheless vital for our survival.

Animal is the story of Bella and Vipulan, two teenagers who are symbolic of a generation crying out its concern for the future. Ecology is their battle. When confronted with the limits of their militant actions they set out on a voyage of discovery around the world to understand how they can have a positive impact on this mass extinction of wild animals and the sustainability of our planet. Through their experiences and encounters, they realise that the problem has to be dealt with at its roots: how can we change the way we live in order to coexist respectfully with other forms of life.
