A conveyor-belt sushi restaurant is the setting for what starts off as a documentary — before colliding with science fiction and animation — about a rare animal that has flashbacks of its natural habitat. This genre-bending film rolls imaginative visual effects, a creative narrative, and a touch of umami into one bitesized package.
