[ Story ]

An installment in a series in which four internationally-renowned directors use dramatic and documentary-style approaches in adapting supernaturally-themed works by famous figures from Japanese literary history. {Parasite Eve} and {Shutter} director Ochiai Masayuki adapts Nobel Prize for Literature recipient Kawabata Yasunari's avant-garde short story for the screen. A middle-aged man (Hirata Mitsuru) enters into an agreement with a young woman (Ashina Sei) to borrow her arm for one night. He becomes captivated with it after returning home, and impulsively considers attaching it to his shoulder.
