Asuka (Reika Hashimoto), an aspiring model, moves to Tokyo to pursue her career. She takes up residence with a moody acquaintance named Kasumi (Kaori Kawamura). Across the street from their apartment, Asuka witnesses a bizarre murder - the body was flayed, disemboweled and arranged into a hideous work of art. A series of coincidental murders occurs, all of which contain what is possibly the murder's calling card: a black lip print dubbed "The Black Kiss". This gruesome crime thriller was originally known as SYNCHRONICITY ("Shinkuronishiti") and features Ken Mitsuishi (AUDITION) and Masanobu Ando (BATTLE ROYALE).
