The main protagonist of the film is a tortoise; an ancient animal that embodies Cura, the Roman goddess of care, voiced by American vocalist Joan La Barbara. The setting is Richard and Dion Neutra's VDL Research House II in Los Angeles. Architect Neutra carefully designed his projects to elicit human sensory and emotional responses.
