Directed by Academy Award®-nominee Hiromasa Yonebayashi . Two crab brothers embark on a grand underwater adventure to find their father after an accident carries him far downstream.

Life Ain’t Gonna Lose | 侍エッグ  16 mins

Acclaimed animator Yoshiyuki Momose makes his directorial debut with a very different kind of story. Shun is an 8-year-old boy living in Tokyo with a life-threatening allergy to eggs. While his mother (Maggie Q) works hard to protect him and lead an ordinary life, Shun has an unexpected encounter with an egg product, and he must begin a race against time to save himself.

Invisible | 透明人間 13 mins

Directed by Akihiko Yamashita. A man struggles with invisibility. As he finds his life beginning to quite literally float away, a momentous decision gives him the chance to reclaim his humanity.
