This drama, set in the depths of rural Japan, is a pure love story. Iwabuchi is a former mafia man now working at a car rental shop, which offers services as casket coaches for funerals.

As soon as Iwabuchi arrives at the destination, he is asked to marry Sawa in a ‘ghost wedding’, as a custom for a dead person who was to marry before his or her death.
