A little girl spots a rabbit in a lawn. She finds its pelt perfect for a warm muff and goes after him with a knife. The rabbit flees, but the girl’s brother finally kills the animal. The children cut the rabbit’s belly only to find a little idol inside. The idol’s magic abilities bring treasures. But is it for long?.. “Rabbit” is a macabre and sinister tale about the loss of innocence, greed and the retribution of nature.
