Driven by desideration, a man wanders about in constant search for and pursuit of a magical cornucopia—his greed dragging him into clashes and wars with people, with nature, and with himself. His vicissitudes are brought to life on the surface of an ancient vase.

ANI ANTONOVA and DIMITER OVTCHAROV, as members of the KOPFKINO Association, make animation films, sculptures and interactive installations. Their first documentary film animation, ‘The Outlander’, was screened at many international film festivals and received numerous prizes. Their second, ‘Cornucopia’, received the Best Animation Award at the Thomas Edison IFF in New Jersey, USA.
