Mooncheese is a short animated film that depicts a small town farmer’s struggle to make a living in a society that’s becoming reliant on factory farming.
When a new factory farm is built across the street from small town farmer Donald, he suddenly finds himself struggling to compete with these more cheaply priced foods. Donald comes up with a plan to harvest mooncheese from the moon itself, hoping that its uniqueness could get him back into a competitive position in the market while maintaining his standards as mooncheese is a renewable resource that grows abundantly. In the end, Donald and the factory farmer join forces because Donald realizes that he’s put his neighbor out of business.
