In the massive city of Tokyo, Kumiko (Kikuchi) lives in utter solitude. A struggling twenty-something, she works a dreadful, dead-end job under an awful boss, is intimidated by her well-off peers, and nagged incessantly by her overbearing mother. The only joy in her life comes from a grainy VHS tape – an American film in which a man buries a satchel of money in the snowy Midwestern plains. Kumiko is somehow convinced that this treasure is real, and obsesses over its discovery.
