A dog Popi and a monkey Huhuu are waiting for their Master to come home who is just one day not coming any more... From this particular day there starts their mutual life. Popi, beeing actually smarter and stronger, capitulates in front of monkey's whims symbolising with it his obedience and subservientness. At the other hand, Huhuu symbolises licentiousness and silliness.
