The film "Escape Artists: The Tale of Mike and Freddie", raises the question—how does an animal go from having a number to having a name, and claiming his life. Mike and Freddie, two steers, in two cities, on their way to the slaughterhouse run for their lives armed only with a leap of faith, and a desire to live.
