[ Story ]

The sequel to a psyco-suspense movie featuring a detective who has the ability to enter into other people's nightmares. Written, directed and edited by globally recognized Tsukamoto Shinya, whose A Snake of June won the Special Jury Prize in the Upstream section at the Venice International Film Festival.
The nightmare detective, Kagenuma Kyoichi (Matsuda Ryuhei), dreams frequently about his mother (Ichikawa Miwako) who killed herself when he was a child. A high-school girl, Yukie (Miura Yui) comes to him for help to be freed from her nightmares. Since Yukie and her friend bullied their classmate, Kikukawa (Kan Hanae), Yukie sees her in her dreams every night. Yukie goes to see Kikukawa at home to apologize, as advised by Kyoichi, however, Kikukawa refuses to see her. The following day, Yukie falls asleep during a class and dreams of Kikukawa killing her friend who bullied Kikukawa with Yukie. The dream turns to reality, and her other friend is also murdered. Yukie is frightened that she would be next. Yukie explains her mind-set when she bullied Kikukawa to Kyoichi, who then enters her dream. Kyoichi identifies her feelings with his mother's, and embraces his mother through Kikukawa as he learns about her life.
