Vanamehe film

Old Man Cartoon Movie

The Old Man is visited on his farm by grandkids who have been dropped off for the summer. Determined to make his progeny see the beauty of country living, he ends up working them like slaves, only to have the little bastards accidentally set loose his prized and thoroughly abused cow. Now the Old Man and his grandkids have just 24 hours to find the rogue bovine, before her unmilked udder explodes and unleashes lactopalypse. On their epic journey, our heroes must face festival hippies, a mysterious Milk Man, forest creeps and other dangers commonly found in the Estonian countryside.
