The film’s Japanese title literally translates to “pitch black girls”, highlighting the characters personalities which soon become dark. One day, pupil Itsumi Shiraishi (Marie Iitoyo) dies at the Seibo Maria Girls High School. The daughter of the school’s administrator, Itsumi was envied by all the students there. Surrounding her death is a shroud of mystery; did Itsumi kill herself or was she killed accidentally or intentionally? At the time of her death, she held a lily of the valley flower in her hand. A rumour spreads that someone in the school’s literature club, which Itsumi had presided, killed Itsumi… A teen film with a difference, building to an unexpected ending. Contains a minor sexual scene. Suitable for ages 15 and above.
