A fairy tale of secrets, evil men, vicious beasts, and two sisters who risk their lives to save their family.
Pepa’s return home escalates rather quickly. As unexpected guests begin to show up to her family’s home, bearing more than gifts. First, a businessman with a secret interest in her sister’s otherworldy powers offers her father millions to sell the family’s land. As he struggles to resist the lure of quick money, Pepa takes matters into her own hands.
She sets out with her sister to capture the mythical beast bound within the caves of Mount Gyodosan. A quest many have attempted, but none to survive. They must acquire the assistance of a resourceful sea otter, if they hope to make it out alive.
The Great Forever is a fairy tale in the vein of Hayao Miyazaki, blending folklore with talking animals, a spirited heroine, and a heart wrenching tale of family love.
