Quick Overview

It is said that marriage is about compromise, and no one understands this more than newlywed Noriko, who marries into the well-established Shito family. Four generations, eight in-laws—all under one roof—is an untenable proposition, unsettling at best for any bride, but Noriko’s new family members are sweet and caring. Living with them is a delight, and Noriko seems to have the perfect marriage.

Yet, the appearance of a disheveled man—asking suspicious questions about her new in-laws—plants a seed of doubt in Noriko’s mind, while she is hanging laundry one morning. Paranoia grows. The unusual behavior of her new family, which she once perceived as charming eccentricities, now appear to be sinister in nature. Their kind smiles, once filled with warmth, now disguise dark secrets. As Noriko delves deeper into the family’s machinations, she awakens to the horrifying reality of “marital compromise.”
