Plot Summary

A newlywed couple Ben and Jane move to Japan for a promising job opportunity - a fashion shoot in Tokyo. During their trip on a dark forest road they experience a tragic car accident, leading to the death of a young local girl. Upon regaining consciousness, they find no trace of her body. A bit distraught the couple arrives in Tokyo to begin their new life. Meanwhile Ben begins noticing strange white blurs in many of his fashion shoot photographs. Jane believes that the blurs are actually spirit photography of the dead girl who they hit on the road, and that she may be seeking vengeance. Written by Brian Corder

Goofs (at around 17 mins) At one point, Jane says she must call New York, but Ben says it's 3am there, yesterday. This is a mistake. If it was 3am in New York, in Tokyo it would be 4pm in the afternoon on the same day (give or take an hour for differences in daylight savings). See more »
