Synopsis

Supernatural Japanese thriller. Takagi (Tadanobu Asano) is badly injured in a car accident that also kills his girlfriend Ryoko (Nami Tsukamoto). When he eventually recovers, he has no memories of his previous life, or of Ryoko. A blank shell of a man, Takagi finds a series of medical textbooks in his parents' house and decides to enroll in medical school. While going through the motions of a normal life, Takagi becomes increasingly obsessed with the corpse of a young woman in his dissection class. Gradually his memories start returning as he realises that the body is that of his dead girlfriend Ryoko. Growing more protective of the body, Takagi also starts experiencing waking dreams of his dead girlfriend, but is Takagi suffering hallucinations as a result of his mental state, or has he found some way of communicating with Ryoko's spirit?
