A naive dump worker named Gert escorts the lovely mute princess Plum to her wedding. Along the way, they encounter a freakish fairy-tale world of strange cows, sheep and a donkey named Gerhard. New Zealand director Florian Habicht recorded all the dialogue first and then shot the actors lip-synching the lines, often to someone else's voice. The result is a singularly strange experience, embraced by film festivals across the world.
