Synopsis

A timid, no-hoper employee, Ryoichi Suzuki used to dream of becoming a punk rocker. However, his dream failed, and now, he is frequently bullied by his colleagues and bosses in the company. One day, he stumbles upon a small turtle at the pet shop. A love at first sight, Ryoichi decides to keep the turtle as his pet and names “Picadon”. Ryoichi talks about his dream and sing songs to his one and only friend, Picadon and starts carrying the turtle around everywhere he goes. But when his colleague finds out that Ryoichi is bringing the turtle to the office, Ryoichi is pushed to the edge and by chance, flushes Picadon down the toilet…
Drifting through the sewer, Picadon is washed ashore to the mysterious strange place where the broken toys and battered dolls talk and live in harmony. However, all the toys were dumped and abandoned by the humans and they all share pain and sorrow. Picadon is saved by a mysterious old man and is given a candy that will allow him to talk like other toys.
Meanwhile, a broken-hearted Ryoichi is forced to sing in front of the public by the street musicians. Ryoichi sings a song for Picadon, however, the music producer misunderstands it as an anti-war song and Ryoichi quickly break through as a star.
As Ryoichi scores consecutive hits and starts fulfilling his dreams, simultaneously, Picadon gradually transforms. The old man notice that he made a mistake. He gave Picadon a candy that will make him grow every time he grants Ryoichi’s wish.
At holy night, the monster appears in the city and miracle happens…!
