Political Animal is a delightfully absurd adventure in which a cow in the throes of an existential crisis recounts her life story. Struck by a deep and derailing sense of meaninglessness, she sifts through her past and present, trying to make sense of it all. On the surface everything in her life appears to be fine. So why then does it feel so pointless all of a sudden? What more could a cow possibly want out of life? And so begins a rather familiar search for enlightenment.
