The animated short Box tells the story of an escape from the tedium and monotony of everyday life. Opening with the blare of an alarm clock, the narrative follows a young couple as they go about their day. From their first cup of coffee in the morning, through work, to crawling in bed at night, the couple moves about with blinders on, oblivious to the evolving world around them. With each new day, it becomes clear that they are enslaved by their routine. The scenes begin to pile on top of each other, making it increasingly difficult to distinguish one day from the next. Eventually, weighted down by the boredom of the cycle, the girl flops exhausted to the ground. Through this interruption to her routine, she begins to take in her surroundings. As the plot progresses, the girl’s curiosity teaches her to look at the world differently, to risk the adventures in life, and eventually leads to the couples escape.
