Ce court métrage d'animation se présente comme une course effrénée à travers le constructivisme russe. Sur une musique exaltée de Georgy Sviridov, le cinéaste Theodore Ushev valorise la ligne, le plan et les rythmes dynamiques tout en rejetant les volumes et les masses statiques. Une animation sans paroles empreint néanmoins d'une ironie féroce sur la cohabitation de l'art et des idéologies.
