Spoiling entire short film

Was this a waste of 30 minutes? Yeah, maybe. Was it a completely unhinged plot making it somewhat worth my time? Absolutely.

Haruko recognizes something mysterious in Mikio who is too nervous to take advantage of this opportunity to connect with his crush instead pushing her away. Haruko is moving away soon so Mikio needs to confess soon. However, Haruko wants him to do it in front of an audience so he needs to muster up some courage. So why do ghosts need to be involved? ...
