This film is the product of a scriptwriting competition for UK secondary schools sponsored by the University of Kent and overseen by Ray Laurence (who also narrates the film). Kien Powell wrote the winning script in 2016 and it was produced by Kent animation student Malachi James in 2017. The film explores the unequal social relations between a young client and his patron with a special focus on the role that food plays in the patronage system. James was inspired by the style of famed 1970s animation studio Hanna-Barbera in his rendering of this story.
