The film opens with a driver escorting ace reporter Tamio to the birthday party of his fiancée Itsuko, for which he is already very late. The driver stops the car believing he has hit a woman pedestrian, but she seems to have vanished. Later, Tamio spots her wandering around near Itsuko’s home, while Itsuko brings darkness into her party by accidentally cutting her finger and getting a suspiciously large amount of blood on her cake. This alarms Itsuko’s father Shigekatsu, because it reminds him of something that happened right before his wife, Miwako, mysteriously disappeared 20 years previously. Of course, the mystery woman turns out to be none other than Itsuko’s long lost mother, who is discovered in a long disused room by her extremely confused husband. To everyone’s consternation, Miwako looks exactly the same as she did 20 years ago. The doctors can’t explain it, and no one is quite sure what to do about this miraculous development.
