Known as the girl who will not die, Tomie was first the main character in a Japanese manga series. The character was later the basis for several live-action films, including this one, Tomie: Another Face. Directed by Toshiro Inomata, the film stars Runa Nagai as the mysterious Tomie, who makes her way through three separate episodic stories. First, Tomie rises from the dead out of jealousy when an opportunistic young woman jumps at the chance to rekindle a relationship with Tomie's newly single boyfriend. In the second vignette, Tomie meets a man in the park and conjures memories in his mind of a girl he once knew. Lastly, Tomie becomes a coroner's object of affection.
