Synopsis


Cowgirl (Aimée-Lyn Marshall) and Cowboy (Sam Ennor) menace Shepherd (Nicholas Dellabarca); Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand; directed by Ginny Spackman).

Cowgirl is a beef addict. Chicken won't do it. Neither will pork. Not even lamb will give her a fix. And she's running out of cow. There's only one left—in the entire world. When she and her salmon-loving running mate, Cowboy (who may or may not be responsible for the extinction of the ostrich), set their sights on Betty the Bovine, will it be curtains for our four-legged friend? Find out who's dead meat in this dark comedy about scarcity and addiction.
