The film is a traditional (stop-motion) animation shot using metal characters on a multiplane shooter. It depicts the 'fable of the cow-tail switch' in a contemporary manner. In short: a hunter leaves his family in order to find food and doesn't return. His youngest son entreats his three older brothers (magicians) to find their father. When they do so, their father is dead. They bring him back to life, and return him to the family. The hunter rewards his youngest son for showing loyalty and faith.
