Mikoto (Riko Fujitani), a waitress who works at the popular Fujiya traditional-style inn, is called back to work by the proprietress while standing by the Kibune River behind the annex. However, two minutes later, for some reason, she finds herself once again facing the Kibune River. Not only Mikoto, but also the clerk, waitresses, chefs, and guests all begin to feel something strange. While watching everyone join forces to investigate the cause, Mikoto finds herself more and more alone.

Those of you who saw Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes at Abertoir will be delighted that the filmmaker’s next film stays with the two minute theme, but this time the characters are stuck in a seemingly endless loop for almost the entirety of the film.  Those of you sceptical enough to question whether this can work – be prepared for an inventive, funny and clever caper that deservedly is playing to huge acclaim on the festival circuit.
