    • Yukiko’s first love ends with the realization that for the older man it was nothing but a game, causing her to lose her voice. Devastated, she decides to end her life at Hotel Namonaki (“Hotel Without a Name”). The hotel has gained the sinister reputation of being a suicide spot. At the last moment, Yukiko is rescued by the strange boy Kazuhiro, the son of the hotel manager Ishigo. After their departure, Ishigo keeps the guests’ belongings. At the hotel, Yukiko withdraws into the dark corridors and starts to mix reality with her imagination. Kazuhiro promises to help her find her voice again. But Yukiko only has eyes for the new guest Yamamura, in whom she sees a possible new lover. Ishigo’s devious plans escalate after the government installs a help line at the hotel, causing an unfortunate tragedy and a new beginning.
