The bizarre story of Rabbit Woman is one thing, but director Verónica Chen has also managed to create a combination of thriller, horror story and manga-style animation. The hunted heroine of this genre-bender is Ana, a young woman with Chinese roots, who works as a civil servant in Buenos Aires. When she finds out that the police are being controlled by the Chinese mafia, she wants to reveal the truth. After the mafia threaten to kill her, she flees to the countryside, where she is promptly in mortal danger from another source, genetically mutated carnivorous killer rabbits.
