Jean works as an assistant to the daguerreotype photographer Stéphane in Paris. When Marie, Stéphane’s daughter, wants to escape her oppressive environment with Jean’s help, ghosts of the past come back to haunt both father and daughter. In his first production shot outside of Japan, NIPPON HONOR AWARD 2016 recipient Kiyoshi KUROSAWA pays homage to Edgar Allan Poe and Edogawa Rampo with a morbid film poem.
