Comet Hyakutake, the Great Comet of 1996, passes closer to the Earth than any other comet in 200 years, while inexplicable and magical incidents occur across Kyoto that result in the disappearances of multiple people. For a journalist, an actor, a gallerist and a ryokan manager, these events will reverberate for the next two decades in Singapore and Japan, and change their lives forever.
