Frank the Wrabbit

Frank is no ordinary rabbit -- he's a highly intelligent "wrabbit" with a philosophical world view that affords him great comfort. Unfortunately, his outlook is challenged when his food source -- a farmer's carrots -- disappears. However, his quick wit allows him to survive and prosper

Frank the Wrabbit is a small woodland animal who is also a philosopher, somewhat in the mold of Plato. He is imaginative but unscientific in his outlook. When his carrots go missing, he is forced to modify his theories about the universe. It is a film about how humans (and others) formulate theories about the universe.
