The story is set in a world where foods that are made from wheat live. The many varieties are hostile to each other. However, when beings made from things other than wheat appear, such as those made from meat and cream, they all work together to oppose them. In this world, a sausage with no unique features appears. Until now, he has never seen anyone different from himself, and is called "Nine" because of the number on his necklace. Nine is perplexed when he sees all of these beings made from various types of food. As he is not made of wheat, he is imprisoned, but thanks to his clever friend, he is accepted as a comrade. After a brief period of peace, another fight begins in a neighboring country. A compromise is reached through the efforts of Nine and his comrades, and it seems like all will end well, but then the liquids arrive... It seems like the trouble is far from over. When Nine returns to his family, he takes with him as his souvenir the idea of individuality. If individuality developed, maybe they wouldn't need numbered necklaces any more. Even inside their small bag, groups and opposition will probably form eventually, but if that happens, he could have fun in the commotion, just like he did in the world of wheat.

A television news crew goes to an antique bookshop because they received an information that a strange guest would appear there. It turns out that the strange guest is – Librophileas, the ancient, mystical creature which lives everywhere where there are books. He explains why he has appeared at that particular place and at that particular time. Among other things, he says that the PDF format and Kindle device terrify him, pointing out his archenemy, another creature called Copyman. The movie is based on a true story. Librophileas explains the magic behind the trick of putting a book under the pillow before going to sleep and knowing all the leasons in the morning, a trick we all used to practice when we were schoolkids. This is a full short movie, but additional episodes will be made. It promotes reading books, and is suitable for both adults and children.
