Story

Sugisaki (Tatsuya Fujiwara) is an actor whose popularity is on the decline. In order to open up new possibilities in his acting career, he takes on the role of the expedition leader in a TV show that explores secluded regions in search for the "Yaga," a legendary unidentified mysterious creature. The crew consists of a producer who is willing to do anything if it seems entertaining (Yusuke Santamaria), a director who only makes cursory decisions (Yukiyoshi Ozawa), a cameraman who takes pride in his work (Yoji Tanaka), a sound engineer/gaffer who is a mysterious creature geek (Yosuke Kawamura), a director's assistant who thinks variety shows are stupid (Hinako Sano), and a perfunctory local interpreter (Akiyoshi Okayasu of the comedy trio Naname 45°). Sugisaki finds himself being pushed around by the crew that lacks teamwork carrying out a haphazard shoot, but gradually he becomes aware of his responsibilities as the leader and starts working "seriously" on creating the show.
