This propaganda cartoon from the studio Bratři v triku is a reflection on war. A curious raven and a constantly sleepy turtle consider the path of history from a distance. They witness the intensive construction of new settlements and villages by local inhabitants, however, there are constantly conflicts that culminate in violence. It is as if people were always looking for a reason to drop bombs from aircraft and incinerate cities. For this reason, the turtle would like to have an alarm clock, so that he would never accidentally sleep through a time of peace.
