Clementine and the Cyber Ducks

Clementine and the Cyber Ducks is a dark comedic riff on the classic folk song set in California simultaneously during the 1849 Gold Rush and the 1990s dot.com bubble. Clementine moves west with her father to strike it rich. As she gets sucked into a series of schemes and scams, the world transforms into an irrationally exuberant American Dream-scape full of shotgun-wielding sisters, angry miners,and a steampunk chorus of deviant ducks.
