Cartoon conventions are toyed with in eight interlocking stories which unfold simultaneously in eight windows on the screen, forever putting to rest such ideas as beginnings, middles and ends. Events are divided into seasonal chapters to the accompaniment of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Film without words. (NFB/ONF)
