Envoy. Tell me, dear spectator, do you sometimes wonder what the world is like? You do? Oh, don’t! Live your life! Live your everyday life! Be happy and content! You are not? Try harder, don’t give a damn about anything! Look: apart from man, all animals know, that most important in life is to enjoy it. Well, our film will help you with that. And we are terribly sorry, but you are going to get more than you expect. Clean. Prudent. User-friendly.
