A community of magical shape-shifting raccoon dogs struggle to prevent their forest home from being destroyed by urban development.
The raccoons of the Tama Hills just outside of Tokyo are being forced from their forest homes by human development. As the woodlands are destroyed and the hills flattened to make room for human housing projects, the raccoons are finding it increasingly difficult to find a place to live, or to gather food. The older, wiser raccoons put forth a plan to try and take up the old traditional raccoon ways and fight back against the humans: use the ancient magical raccoon art of transformation, which can only be done by raccoons, foxes and some cats.
