"In a disheveled and ransacked backyard, a dog named Simon has been forgotten by his owners. Simon breaks free and partners with a raccoon and a deer who take him into the woods. But Simon realizes he is not quite ready to live in the wild. And in the abandoned areas of the town strange things begin to happen. . . . Vacancy explores the ways that animals think; how they internalize their changing environment and express their thoughts, fears, or excitement."
