This animated short portrays the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on toys. Often regarded as inanimate and lifeless, toys actually have a secret life of their own. As their master stays at home all the time to play with them, toys are tired of being playthings and yearn for a new way of life away from their master, human beings, and coronavirus. They put on the masks made by themselves and embark on an adventure outside. Can they escape from the human world in search for privacy, independence, health, and safety?
