Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Japanese actress Miako Tadano makes her feature directorial debut with an adaptation of her own novel concerning an expectant mother whose pregnancy stretches on three times longer than the standard nine months. Fuyuko Matsuda (Tomoko Nakajima) has gone to extraordinary lengths to protect her unborn child from such things as excessive noise and microwave radiation, and though her sister (Erika Okuda), mother (Midori Kiuchi), and grandmother (Yatsuko Tanami) all humor the overprotective mother, Fuyuko's husband Toru (Hidetoshi Nishijima) just finds his wife's eccentric behavior obnoxious. Upon discovering that her husband has entered into an affair with a co-worker, Fuyuko begins to suspect that their pair may not be quite prepared for parenthood. When Fuyuko's pregnancy subsequently endures for eighteen months past her original due date, her lingering stress begins to become infectious and her callous husband suggests that the unborn child may be of extraterrestrial origins.
