It's a beautiful day at the duck pond. Plenty of bread at the duck pond. Everybody is happy at the duck pond. Nobody sleeps at the duck pond. They only eat at the duck pond. If you're a good duck, you can go to the Cloud.
Ingrid wants to spend her day relaxing at the park, but is caught up in the dystopian world of the duck pond. She befriends Duck, a duck addicted to nutrient-poor white bread, and meets the duck pond's all-knowing dictator, Homer. What ensues is a madcap scroll through cute animal videos, philosophical history, and metatheatrical references.

"[T]he cloud...All that information - all that information capacity - looms over us, not quite visible, not quite tangible, but awfully real; amorphous, spectral; hovering nearby, yet not situated in any one place.
