Cult fantasy festival poster boy Takashi Miike goes to the theatre. Kabuki star Miyuki Goto decides to play Oiwa in a new play based on the classic ghost story ‘Yotsuya Kaidan’. She pulls some strings to get her lover cast too even though he's a relatively unknown actor. Other performers also secretly and jealously lust after Miyuki and off-stage the cast's possessive love and obsessions exist as amplified reality as they portray the shocking on-stage Samurai betrayals. Soon fantasy and reality blur as psychological illness and the supernatural play their part in a bloody and disturbing curtain call.
