Their goal is to avoid ending up on the tope floor of the nursing home which is known as the "lost causes" floor.

"Whether you find

an animated look at creeping inanimation, amusing or terrifying will depend almost entirely on which side of 50 you are currently parked. Even the youngest viewer, however, will sense the tragedy coming off this film in waves: It takes more than cartoon characters to buffer the horror of human decline."
