Old Man Cartoon Movie (2019)

Our protagonist, the Old Man, is visited on his farm by grandkids who have been dropped off for the summer. Determined to make his progeny see the simple beauty of country living, he ends up working them like slaves, only to have the little bastards accidentally set loose his prized and thoroughly abused cow. Now, the Old Man and his grandkids have just 24 hours to find the rogue bovine, before her unmilked udder explodes and unleashes lactopalypse, or before the mysterious Old Milker lethally disarms her. On their epic journey, our heroes must face festival hippies, forest creeps, sawmill workers and other dangers commonly found in the Estonian countryside.

Old Man is an ill-mouthed, do-before-thinking sort of a dude well known by the Estonians from the highly popular comic strip Vanamees.
