All is peaceful in the mystical forest of Namu. Villagers live in harmony with nature, gathering daily at a crystal clear pond to reflect on their lives and ask for guidance from the woodland spirits. This is how the Namu’s typically resolve their problems, until “the Vanities” a visiting crowd of poisonous flowers, present new solutions in the form of glitter, lipstick and jewels. As Namu grows more and more enamored with the glamorous lifestyle of the Vanities, the elders of the village start to question the true source of “beauty.” In a clash between nature and glitz, its up to the village youth to decide where the Beauty of Namu truly lies.
