Stuffed is all about the surprising, unusual world of taxidermy. Through the eyes and hands of renowned artists across the world, the film allows the audience to dip into and explore this diverse subculture, where sculptors must also be scientists. It is an artistic medium formed by a collection of people who have a fanaticism for nature matched only by their desire to protect it. In an unexpected twist, Stuffed argues for the importance of preserving nature, using taxidermy as its unlikely vehicle, and the taxidermist as its wild driver.
