Production House: Appleboxman Workshop
This is a story of a nobody in a big city. It is about a piggy going to the city from the rural areas to work for money. Every day, he lives in the cold and narrow cage house and works like a machine. As time goes by, the piggy has collapsed, but fortunately he is saved in the end. “Where have the flowers gone?” has its concept derived from “Metropolis”, “Modern Times” and other classic films. The background is 19th century Europe during the second industrial revolution. A young guy pursues his dream, but in reality all efforts seem to be in vain, and the guy may even feel lost. The title is taken from the song “Where have all the flowers gone?”. The original lyrics uses the disappearing flowers to tell the story of people lost in the war. Here it is a symbol of the piggy losing his mind in the city.
