Yoshimi, a young mother going through a contentious divorce, moves into an inexpensive new apartment, only to notice strange water leakages with no visible source. Gradually, other, stranger phenomena begin to take place, and Yoshimi is faced with another risk: if she tells anyone about them, her husband may try to make her look insane to win custody of their daughter. This moody J-horror piece was directed by Nakata Hideo, who had previously made the enormously influential Ringu. http://docfilms.uchicago.edu/dev/calendar/2019/spring/sundays.shtml
