In a zoo, the animals have gotten hold of a woman’s fashion magazine. They read the beauty pages. Suddenly the elephant try to get rid of her wrinkles, the panda doesn’t want the shadows around his eyes and the snake is sad to read that snakeskin is out of fashion. After having battled with their ‘troubles’ for a while, they learn from a child that they were actually better liked as their natural selves.
This is a fun fable about humans’ strive towards unattainable beauty ideals.
