Human nature has always been the motif that intrigues me the most. "Meat Days" is a horror and thriller story about how people survive in a chaotic world. How the heroine sacrificed to her family, but in the end she was betrayed by another primal instinct. A charcoal sketch-alike visual though is to express the deep depression, but it still reveals love, sacrifice and selfishness of human beings.
