User Score: 67/100


Akira, the young new schoolteacher in town falls for secretive Miki, an older woman who takes care of her family's urn that supposedly holds a forest wolf-spirit, inugami. People soon start disappearing and the town blames Akira.

The Bonomiya family’s women are the protectors of the Inugami (evil spirits). If the Bonomiya women fail to keep watch over the spirits – or worse, if they decide to use them for revenge – then the Inugami will run wild in the village looking for blood. Middle-aged family member Miki leads a lonely life as a traditional papermaker in a remote mountain village. When Miki falls for the handsome new schoolteacher, Akira, her youthful appearance stirs rumors and family problems. But when unexpected tragedy strikes, suspicion and strange events upset the calm community. An eerie fog cloaks the village, but it can no longer hide the secrets of Miki’s past . . .
