  • The BIG ANIMAL Alternative


Comedy. When a large but placid camel wanders into a small town, left behind by a travelling circus, it is adopted by local bank clerk Zygmunt. At first the animal is tolerated quite peaceably by the townfolk, who then grow gradually tired of it, and ostracise both the camel and Zygmunt's family.
