Summary: A needle found embedded in the body of an apparent suicide leads embalmer Miyako (Reiko Takashima) to believe that there may be more to this death than meets the eye. And when the corpse’s head is severed and stolen, Miyako begins her journey through a nightmare world of live organ harvesting, religious sects, multiple personalities, illegal drug experiments and murder... Cannes award-winning director Aoyama bloodies his arthouse hands in this extremely gory investigation into the illusions that make up society.
