A boy makes a journey to an island in the middle of the ocean by way of a flying boat. When night falls on the island, cinder-eyed cats come out to play. The creatures of the sea come out of the water to dance and interact with the boy and the cats until the night is over. When it is morning, the creatures all leave and the boy goes home too, until it is night again.
