The plot, though simple, isn’t necessarily understandable without being explained. The main character, a cat named Nyatto, embarks upon a journey to save his sister’s soul, which was ripped in two when Nyatto tried to save her from Death. She trails after him, brain-dead. They encounter many brilliant, mind-bending situations, beginning with a disturbing magic show.
