The Squirrels is hilarious, allegorical, and an observant reflection of our own society of haves and have nots. All is not well in the heart of the tree. Sciurus, the patriarch of a family of gray squirrels, has collected enough nuts to last ten winters. When a group of starving fox squirrels begs him to share his hoard of food, animosity erupts into a ferocious war that threatens to tear apart his world and his family. Imagine if Shakespeare or Tolstoy wrote about squirrels and you get the picture.
