Love and Peace

Kyo is an office worker living his life in constant fear of rejection and mockery. An adopted turtle named Pikadon is his only friend and confidante. After being flushed down a toilet, the turtle winds up in a mysterious sewer lair, where an old man cares for a ragtag group of toys and creatures he has brought to life. After consuming a magical sweet, Pikadon explodes in size and commits to fulfilling its former owner’s every wish. Meanwhile. Kyo is unwittingly propelled down a path that leads him to superstardom... You’ve heard this said about a lot of films before, but you’ve really never seen anything quite like Love and Peace.
