Always wanted an extra fluffy rabbit, a legless cat, or a dog on two legs? Dr Schönbacher's new app makes it easy for you to design and order your own! The Breeder tells the story of a scientist who uses genetic modification to design custom-made pets. These hyper-cute creatures melt hearts worldwide, but there is a dark side to their irresistible begging eyes... 

The Breeder is a chapter for the feature film Mosaic commissioned by Imagine Science Films and Labocine.
