Why do we look at animals?, What kind of language is there between humans and animals?.This film examines the craft of animal wranglers: The training of certain actions and subsequent bewilderment on set; miscommunication between the trainer´s intention and the animal’s will; how the dynamics of a shooting stress up the waiting time on set. This documentary tells about the effort required for mutual understanding to take place, and it highlights the fleeting moments in which this happens.
