How are you gonna die?
Um, she didn't tell me that part, so...
Death. Well, she showed up this morning and told me that I'm going to die tonight, so she hopes that I can do whatever I want. Isn't that nice?
Well, aren't you gonna fight her?
What for? I'm not a fool. Would you?

Kenji (Takeshi Kaneshiro) is a Japanese guy living in New York. He spends his days at a local coffee shop. He encounters his mysterious dream girl (Mira Sorvino). She is death and she reveals that he has twelve hours to live.
This is an experimental indie. There is some surrealism but it struck me as fake unreality. One thing that doesn't help is the guy's heavy accent. It actually grew to annoy me. The acting ranges from amateurish to some recognizable veterans like Jeffrey Wright, Michael Imperioli, and Ben Gazzara. This is strictly indie time. It would help to have some better cinematic style. Newbie director Wonsuk Chin tries a few moves but they come off looking amateurish.
