Synopsis by Maggie Sadler

A young girl named Miyo Sasaki (Mirai Shida) finds herself helplessly in love with Kento Hinode (Natsuki Hanae), her popular and attractive classmate. Miyo strives to capture Kento's interest and resorts to using her unique ability to shapeshift into a cat to do so. However, she slowly begins to lose her sense of self the more she transforms, calling the boundary between human and animal into question. Co-directed by Jun'ichi Satô and Tomotaka Shibayama.
