Sayuri is a curious creature who lives on her husband with her equally surreal mother and father. With an antenna-like whip protruding from her head, she is a striking daughter, and her long-awaited time to strike has come.

There's weird and then there's Japan weird.

This is fucking disturbing and extremely uncomfortable to watch.

Computer-rendered imagery composed of distorted faces, confusing scenes of human depravity, incestuous body horror, and a sense of gradual deprivation with no true intention spotted. An ugly fever dream. The entropy of a disturbed mind melting into itself.
