abused child suddenly vanishes, but then mysteriously reappears a few
minutes later. Something fundamental has changed. The person who mistreated
the child becomes consumed with dread and is cursed to die three days
later. This is a urban legend known as the Tommy Curse, the brainchild
of Kodomo Tsukai, a living doll from an alternative fantasy world. He
collects the souls of troubled kids to act as his milky-eyeballed army
of assassins. The home-base for this bizarre underworld is an old-time
Carny Circus where nothing is real but anything can happen. Into this
David Lynch fever-dream comes a desperate couple, local newspaper
reporter Shunya and his girlfriend Naomi who have been accidentally
targeted for the three-day death watch.
