Ghost Food takes place in the distant future. It tells the story of a sister and brother who are out on a hunt at the city's edge where food has become scarce. To survive many are forced to hunt and gather for what they can find. On their journey they encounter the spirit of Bakwas' the ghost king. He lives in an invisible house in the forest and waits for those who wander alone. He offers food to hungry travellers in order to capture them into his ghost world. The sister and brother must make the choice between accepting his offering or continuing on their path and risking of starvation.
