The presence of the moon affects all under its glow. One day, the demon appears and pierces the starts. It causes the flood that engulfs the peaceful town. The demon even wants to eat the moon… The film depicts, with sumie-like monochromatic animation, the lunar cycle and the mysterious, and sometimes eery, energies invoked by its radiance.
