Ayako runs into her former classmate Yukari and offers her a job with better prospects. Yukari accepts but is surprised to find herself reporting to Ayako, who oddly and suddenly makes her life completely miserable. The inevitable confrontation climaxes with a 24-minute static shot that startles, horrifies and explains everything.

Director Sakamoto does not make it easy for her audience with the slow pace, heavy dialogue, unsympathetic characters, static shots and long takes. But the reward is immense – a skillfully constructed story full of tension, an unexpected surprise in the middle of the film and an unforgettable climax.

Six years in the making, the film was the talk of the town at Tokyo and Berlin International Film Festivals, winning the Japanese Cinema Splash award and the FIPRESCI Prize respectively.
