This is a story about animals that live in a forest where it rains endlessly. They are wet and ill.
But here's the puzzle... Animals constantly hear a voice from the sky: "the world is wonderful"! By chance, the little gopher reveals the secret of the mysterious voice and finds salvation from the eternal rain.

I think this one's quite charming. I wasn't sure about the "religion" genre as there's nothing explicit, but it probably fits however you choose to interpret it. Also it's refreshing to see a modern animated film whose characters actually seem to live and breathe when they move.
