Viciously assaulted while on a film shoot in New Zealand, she flees her husband aided by Bill a young corporate attorney. Furious, her husband employs two mercenaries to pursue the pair through the wilds of the East coast.

While Bill finds himself embroiled in her battle, Yayoi must come to terms with her past or be consumed by it.
