Storyline

Dr. Marlowe, a paleontologist and professor, finds a piece of a map pointing to the place where the Ningyo, the mythical Japanese creature, could be found. The legend claims whomever consumes its flesh will attain remarkable longevity. He presents the project to his peers, who mock and dismiss him as a fraud. He decides to risk everything and go after the Ningyo on his own in hopes to bring to light what could be one of the greatest contributions to science. What he could not anticipate is that, in his search, he is confronted with a choice that puts the very foundations of his morality to the test. Written by Anonymous

My hatsoff & Shirtsoff
1 December 2017 | by pdeepu84See all my reviews

I watched this on Vimeo, and is the first video on vimeo, I'd to, out of enthusiasm, switch off my room lights to watch/experience this masterpiece only in dark, esp when professor/He enters the tunnel... needless to say, its a well-crafted master piece and obviously trillions times worth than hundreds of films made worldwide, those offer nothing to the audience except limiting to buy tickets..that isn't surprising though..what surprises me is the 'GENEROSITY' of the creators!... I'm sure this video, certainly can alarm or jolt the brains & hearts of many or almost all creators on vimeo/Hollywood/bollywood/Tollywood/Chinese/British to re-verify whether their movies/videos or worth to sell or share it free! This creation/video is also worth mark as an eligibility benchmark, by the production houses to make a safe bet before invest in-to making a movie. My hatsoff & Shirtsoff (in some regions of India it's a tradition to remove shirts before you enter inside Temples, to gain the positive energy from the Idol), for sharing behind the scenes of Ningyo/incredible!
