Happy Are The Amnesiacs
Fifty-six year old meteorologist Shimura Kobo lives a quiet, unassuming life alone in his house in the Nagasaki prefecture of Japan. Alone, or at least he thinks so. What he doesn’t know is that for the past year an intruder has been secretly cohabiting with him. She only dares to venture out from the cramped confines of the cupboard space where she hides herself at night after he leaves for work each morning. While he’s gone she uses his bathroom to freshen up, browses his library of paperbacks to discover her next great read, drinks his tea, and eats sparingly from his refrigerator. How did she get there? What does she want? More importantly, how will Shimura react when he finally discovers her uninvited presence in his home?
