Storyline

It's the year 1999, Hei-shu (Kuroki), a long-term unemployed man, finally gets a job in a local musical band, performing at funerals and weddings. One day, Hei-shu's cat is missing. He later suspects that the cat has turned into a woman called Yokulut. Hei-shu is a, so called, "Japanese Culture Buff". He believes that he was Japanese in his previous life and was named "Tesuo" (the character from a very popular Japanese cartoon).

Hei-shu is obsessed with Gao Ya-qi, a a female news anchor. He shares a special world with Gao. From time to time, Gao talks to him personally on the TV screen. Later, she also warns Hei-shu better to keep his job. Otherwise, he might be one of the targets of the government's conspiracy - to terminate worthless individuals, especially the unemployed ones. The irony is that no one in the band can play any musical instruments....

On the eve of the millennium new year, every secret seems to have a different key to its mysteries...
