Deep in the forest, a hunter encounters a strange creature he cannot kill. In a deceptively colourful and childish graphic style, Irwin evokes a bleak universe. A forest provides the backdrop for a surreal rite of passage: the male hunter becomes female, and he sacrifices his own body as food for the forest children.
