In Denmark there are approximately one million pets registered. This means that there is a pet staying in more than every third Danish household. Pets are living beings with an address in people's most private spheres. There are no practical reasons for their existence. On the contrary, pets are often rather unpractical to have to do with. Still, they occupy a central place in many people's hearts. This is why pets in themselves are an outcome of human nature; the pleasure, the irrational, the imaginary and the love.»Pets« is a filmic essay and a nature film about the animals in people's everyday life. Two considerable and mutually different species share lives. The production describes visually the register of emotions at stake in pet-owners. At the same time it is dedicated to the very object to which the human tenderness is directed: the beloved animals!
