The animation talks about a girl whose body is transforming into a monster as her jealousy grows. The prescription from a weird doctor swapped the spirit of the girl and the monster living in her inner world.
The concept of the monster is inspired by a creature called Lei in “Over the Mountain and the Sea”. It looks alike a bob cat, grown with hair like a human does. It is both ying and yang itself. Eating its meat can “cure” jealousy. This myth triggered my imagination. Creating this animation is also a process of curing my own sickness.
動畫講述一個女孩的身體因妒忌心愈強而愈發變形,怪奇醫師開出的處方令女孩與內心世界的怪物精神對調。主角所變成的怪物取靈感自山海經中一種叫類的獸,牠狀如山貓,自為陰陽,食者不妒。就著這引子,我展開對妒忌這題材的想像。
