A man catches hermit crabs which only live on a certain island in Japan. He releases them in his hotel room. Large numbers of hermit crabs are spread around and they move freely around the room; on the bed, on the desk, on the carpet, and sometimes they get into the refrigerator. Others drop from the shelf and even go into the folds of the bed cover. They act like nothing happened and don’t even care about the man taking a video of them. It is a silent happening, but also extraordinary and ominous.
