The Red Demon tells the story of a creature who washes up on the shore of a small beach town. Reddened from long exposure to the elements and seemingly unable to speak a human language, the residents of the town immediately label him a demon, come from the sea to eat them. The Demon's lone advocate is an outcast known only as That Woman, who sees in the Red Demon a mirror image of her own rejection.  Together with her simple-minded brother Tombi, and an amorous suitor, Mizukane, their journey of discovery illuminates humanity's behavior in moments of intercultural conflict, focusing on racist fears of immigration and society's struggle with intolerance. Through satire, wordplay, wit, and a shocking surprise ending, The Red Demon asks this central question: How do we identify humanity, in both ourselves and others?
