Domestic is a story about people who eat the animals they love and animals which unconditionally love the people. A rabbit, a chicken, a cat, a dog and a pigeon are passing throught the lives of the main characters, influencing their development. With an outstanding imaginary, but also a painful truth, Domestic is the story of the children, adults and animals who live together hoping for a better life.
