SYNOPSIS

Studying under Japanese horror master Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Yui Kiyohara’s debut blends a compelling ghost story, an unworldly mystery, and a delicate family drama. Teenager Seri lives with her mother and longs for her estranged father. In the same house, Tōko, a woman in her 30s, takes in a boarder who can’t remember her name. Worlds and otherworlds collide as the two independent storylines develop and the familiar slips into the mysterious.  Through her precise and thoughtful direction, Kiyohara elicits an immersive sense of the uncanny and ominous.
