The world is in a state of collapse. The economy is in freefall, murders are committed on the streets. Main protagonist Miyabi doesn’t realise it yet but she is also tumbling. Her work as a call girl and her boyfriend cannot mask the void that exists within her following the death of her daughter. When a weird customer starts to take a picture of her parts of her body - her spine, her feet, her arms – she soon realises that she can sense her daughter’s spirit, feel it, cradle it. All that remains for her eyes to be photographed and then she will see the fall of society.

In a stunning debut (made with a small budget while working full time), director Keishi Kondo masterfully manipulates tone to create a hypnotic film as it slips from the drab reality to supernatural horror. Dreamlike and uncanny dream sequences marked by bold lighting and menacing soundscapes blur the borders as the film turns into both a fascinating depiction of a grief-fuelled breakdown and an existential horror film.
