In this adaptation of a Native American folktale, the Coyote schemes to become the strongest of all the animals. With a visual style that simulates cut-paper and uses the cultural motifs of the Pacific Northwest, we follow a story about the creation of the world, the ranking of all its creatures, and the world's first (failed) all-nighter.
