Plot synopsis[edit]

A handyman (Masato Hagiwara) gets involved in a kidnapping scheme with the wife of a wealthy businessman. She lets herself be tied up and confined in his house while he sends the ransom demand. When he returns home that night, however, he finds her lying dead on the floor. In a panic, he buries her body deep in the woods and tries to return to his ordinary life. One day, he thinks he spots her walking down the street. Is his mind playing tricks on him, or has she somehow returned from the grave?


Critical reception[edit]

The film received favourable reviews, garnering a 73% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, certifying it as "fresh."[1] and a 63 out of 100 grade on Metacritic, which means "generally favorable reviews."[2]
