Abstract:

In this hybrid of mythology and mystery, a twenty-something advertising executive receives a postcard from a friend, and casually appropriates the image for an insurance company's advertisement. What he doesn't realize is that included in the pastoral scene is a mutant sheep with a star on its back, and in using this photo he has unwittingly captured the attention of a man in black who offers a menacing ultimatum: find the sheep or face dire consequences. This catapults him into a surreal and elaborate quest to find the mythical sheep in the remote and snowy mountains of northern Japan.
