The protagonist Pluto-n flits across the snowy landscapes as a shadow actor. A red dot lets the aliens know that Pluto-n is on a unique mission in search of wishes. He is torn between pursuing his mission and simultaneously standing up for his natural surroundings, which he sees as his point of light. Identifying himself as a red dot hacker, Pluto-n goes to a ghost turn under the snow, under a cabin, and he discovers the shocking truth – the life he knows is the elaboration of a magical cyber intelligence. The film speeds up even more when a team of ghost shadow Pluto-n researchers travel through red holes in space to ensure the survival of scripts and patterns that hold a lot of mystery.
