In a hotel room in Okinawa, many local animals (none were harmed): hermit crabs, starfish, frogs and lizards. The change of habitat leaves them disorientated and the video camera, sometimes left to record remotely, is evidence of their wandering around the room. Straddling the line between a documentary and experimental cinema, for its Japanese director, Hirofumi Nakamoto, it is a science fiction film that has come from and stars the animals themselves. For them, deep space is an unknown hotel room while viewers are in awe of their size and their movements on the screen, it is a fantasy film borne out of animal instincts.
