    • Kazari and Yoko (Kazari to Yoko)
      “If my Mother killed me, I wonder how she would do it. Kazari and I, Yoko, are identical twins, but Mother only loves Kazari. My Mother abuses me everyday, and doesn’t give me a room or any food.” When Yoko tries to break free from the situation, something happens that makes events turn in an unexpected direction.

      Seven Rooms
      “One day, my big sister and I are suddenly entrapped in a small, square concrete room. There are 7 rooms in all. The other six rooms imprison one person each. Each room is connected by a drainage passage that only my small body can fit through. On the 6th day, everyone will be massacred.” In the end, will the pair survive?

      When the Sun Shines (Hidamari no Toki)
      “Most of humanity has already died out. I was created for the purpose of burying a man, so I’ve had to learn about ‘death’. Through the man’s life I’ve learned many things, and felt many things. As he approaches death…the truth becomes clear.” A moving piece of fantasy CG animation.

      “Sitting on the living room sofa between my parents makes me happier than anything else in the world. But before I knew it, something became strange. My father was convinced my mother was dead, and my mother believed my father was dead, and I was the only one each of them could see. I was the one who connected the three people in our world, but that world started to split apart…”

      A man kills a woman in a fit of rage at a dilapidated zoo. He visits the zoo everyday to photograph the woman’s dead body. Before long, bizarre things start happening to him – the zoo that’s supposed to be there is gone, and photographs that the man never took come into his possession. Gradually, the line between reality and dreams is blurred…
