Synopsis

In an alternate reality where cryptozoological animals exist and are exhibited in zoos, a group of cryptozookeepers go out to try to capture the Baku, a mythological dream-eating creature. After succeeding, they are presented with a dilemma: should they display it in public or keep it hidden? One of the biggest animated sensations of the year, winning awards at both Sundance and Berlin.
