    • Synopsis
    • Akako (Fumi Nikaido) spends her days happily in the company of an aging writer (Ren Ohsugi). Although very far apart in age, the couple converse endlessly. At night, they sleep side by side like a contented married couple. But Akako is at times human and at other times a bright red goldfish, a shapeshifter whose true form is unknown to others. Disrupting the idyllic yet surreal relationship is the appearance of a ghost from the writer’s past, his former lover.
