They are lovers and competitors - nomadic freelancers in pursuit of sensation and depravity, encountering each other only in airport hotels and browser windows. Naomi finds herself drawn to the headlines surrounding Célestine and Aristide Arosteguy, Marxist philosophers and sexual libertines. Célestine has been found dead and mutilated in her Paris apartment. Aristide has disappeared.

    Actor William Hurt reads this story of a small Japanese boy whose only interest is drawing pictures of cats, even while everyone else in the village is struggling to defeat a mysterious demon that plagues the countryside. Although first seen as entirely useless, it is the boy's peculiar talent that ultimately restores prosperity to the land. This haunting and enchanting folktale about finding your place in the world resonates with deep respect for and appreciation of the Japanese culture.
