First time filmmakers Albert Birney and Jon Moses blend live action with stop-motion to follow an alienated young man named Abraham, who lives in a confined apartment where his only companion is a giant machine. Inside the machine is a man and a woman who take care of Abraham's every need. With the help of a small singing cowboy who grows out of his side, Abraham moves from the depths of industrial oppression to the elation of nature and its mischievous forest spirits.
