Kumiko has been placed at Green Pastures, a well-regarded retirement home. Although her daughters had only the best intentions in choosing this home for her, the 76-year-old widow makes her escape after a few days. Rebellious and independent, she refuses to let anyone tell her how to live – and moves into an apartment on her own, keeping its location secret. Kumiko savors her little day-to-day pleasures: decorating however she likes, eating whatever she likes, and going swimming at the pool. But something has hitched a ride in her bags: the shadow of death. Kumiko knows how to stop it, though… She decides to buy a vacuum cleaner and capture the evil spirit! Yet can anyone really escape the Grim Reaper?
