When salaryman Jun (Ken Yasuda) gets home, he finds his wife Chie (Nana Eikura) bleeding from her mouth and lying on the floor. He is shocked by the scene, but it turns out the blood is just ketchup and she is pretending to be dead. Without telling him why, Chie pretends to be dead everyday. Jun is dumbfounded by his wife’s behavior, but he begins to feel uneasy with her.
