Storyline

People from all walks of life (a high-school student, a middle-aged businessman, a yakuza chief, etc.) all receive mysterious messages from loved ones who were killed 3 months earlier in a shipwreck. They are instructed to go to a small island in the Inland Sea that evening. At the stroke of midnight, the lost ship emerges from the sea and they are given a brief time to say their final words to their lost loved ones, before the deceased must once again board the ship and it sinks back into the depths.

The usual canny blend of the tragic and comic

Interesting theme, slightly lengthy in places, but overall the comical moments do not distract the viewer from the portraits of some sad and lonely characters.
