A dog idol is stolen from the island of Takabaru, which is suppose to have rejuvenative powers. Thereafter, various characters are trying to use its anti-aging powers to make a sellable potion. The film is mostly relies on slapstick and sight gags to carry it. Don't expect a script with depth, and its humour depends upon ones tastes.
