YesAsia Editorial Description

Two schoolgirls yearn to see death in the dark and unsettling teenage drama Night's Tightrope, directed by Mishima Yukiko (A Stitch of Life). Starring young rising actresses Honda Tsubasa (Blue Spring Ride) and Yamamoto Mizuki (Sadako vs Kayako), the film is based on the novel Shojo by Minato Kanae, whose works have inspired the films Confessions, A Chorus of Angels and The Snow White Murder Case.

High school student Yuki (Honda Tsubasa) is volunteering at a hospital pediatrics ward for the summer. A transfer student had bragged about seeing the dead body of her friend, and since then, the envious Yuki has dreamed of witnessing the moment of death for herself. She gets close with the critically ill children in her ward, and plots to make her dream come true. Meanwhile, her friend Atsuko (Yamamoto Mizuki) volunteers at a nursing home. Tortured by bullying, Atsuko has been contemplating death. In order to find the will to live, she wants to see someone else die.

Product Information

Two teenage girls harbor a desire to witness the moment when someone dies, in order to come face-to-face with the true meaning of death.

Yuki works as a volunteer at a hospital’s pediatric ward in the summer holidays of her second year of high school. Toward the end of last semester, a transfer student in her class named Shiori boasted that she had seen the dead body of her best friend, which left Yuki feeling an indescribable sense of discomfort, and even a little envy. A desire has grown within her to surpass Shiori by being present when a person actually dies. What’s more, she wants to be the one to make that happen, in the most amusing way. She develops close relationships with the children she works with, who have cruelly little time left to live, and plots to make her dream come true. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Yuki, her best friend Atsuko is volunteering at a nursing home for the elderly. She has been a victim of insidious bullying, and has come close to losing the will to live, but clings to a faint hope that seeing someone die might give her the strength to go on. So begins their shocking summer holiday…
