Synopsis

One day, Fumiko runs into her former schoolmate Ryota. As though under the influence of a higher power, the two decide to get married. But as the wedding preparations progress, Ryota is increasingly disturbed by his secret ability to see the dead, and his relationship with Fumiko gradually degenerates. When he encounters Sae Kimura, a woman with the same ability as Ryota, things only get worse, until one day the man suddenly loses his power and realizes how much he actually depended on it. Distraught, he decides to make a clean cut with the past and with his relations with the two women. But the bonds created by destiny cannot be interrupted by just the will of a man.

Director statement

“The red thread of fate – an East Asian myth of a thread that ties destined lovers together – is nothing but a curse. We cannot will miracles to happen; they are forced upon us, abruptly and violently, by an unfathomably great power. One cannot escape it, one cannot resist it. The mythical thread then, if it exists, is surely something monstrous.”
