A family of four-legged creatures known as “thoriphants” work as beasts of burden for Simon, a bitter farmer living on an isolated plot of land. One night, the thoriphant Mosley and his young son, Rue, discover a cave with ancient drawings— creatures just like themselves, only these have hands and walk upright. The discovery prompts Mosley to embark on a dangerous quest to find what happened to his ancestors and perhaps realize his own true nature. Since this is an animation feature, all actors are voice only. This is the first Chinese/New Zealand animation co-production.
