Inspired by their shared fascination with myths and stories, award-winning creative studio Mixtape Club teamed up with New York Times-bestselling children’s book author Adam Gidwitz to bring to life an enduring Japanese folk tale in a present-day setting. The film's graphic style was designed by New Yorker illustrator R Kikuo Johnson.
