On this Cinebite, we continue on with the Schrody's Ladder Segment - Thoughts Without Words - Part 02 of When Animals Dream (2014). If you haven't, please check out Cinebite #29 in which Mox and Ono watched When Animals Dream in the original dialogue without subtitles, trying to figure out the story's premise from what they see on screen. On this segment, they re-watched the film (with subtitles) and try to match from what they assessed from the action they've seen to what the story is actually about. They were close.
