Ichiro Kure (Yoji Matsuda) emerges from a coma to find himself in a psychiatric hospital. One doctor tells Ichiro that he is hospitalized because he has murdered his mother and his wife and explains his condition is inherited from a mad painter who lived over 1,000 years ago. Time moves forward and backward as disturbing Freudian interpretations are used in trying to explain the malady of the inmate. Even more disturbing are the psychiatrists themselves who act as impromptu masters of ceremonies.
