    • Synopsis
    • Jun is a hard-working company man who returns home one night after a hard day to find his wife, Chie, collapsed near the door in a pool of blood. Panicking, he rushes to her side, but then notices a bottle of ketchup nearby. “Tee-hee-hee”, Chie giggles in a feigned unconscious state. “Did I scare ya?” When Jun, relieved, demands a reason for her foolishness, Chie can only laugh teasingly. And so it begins. From that point on, every time Jun returns home, he finds her “dead” by different and increasingly outlandish causes. One night, she’s been eaten by a crocodile. Another night, it’s fatal gunshot wound or her head has been pierced by an arrow. Gradually, the “death play” escalates. Jun, who initially takes the behavior in stride begins to worry when she never really gives him a reason. Is she bored? Sad? Is it a cry for help?
      This is a story about a unique relationship between a husband and wife and the way they communicate in their third year of marriage, depicted with plenty of comic beats and loads of heart.
