DVD release of the film "Kujira no Hone" directed by Takamasa Ooe, a scriptwriter of "Drive My Car." --Mamiya, an insomniac who has broken up with his soon-to-be-married girlfriend, meets a high school girl on a matching app who is the only one who replies to him, but the girl commits suicide in Mamiya's apartment. Mamiya is so upset that he tries to bury her in the mountains, but the next thing he knows, her body has vanished. Mamiya discovers a girl named "Asuka" who looks exactly like the dead high school girl in the AR application called "Mimi". Asuka is a charismatic figure who posts videos around town that can be replayed through "Mimi," and her fans roam the streets in search of her videos. As Mamiya follows Asuka's trail, the boundary between reality and fantasy becomes blurred. Who is Asuka? Is she the same person as the dead girl? And does she really exist...?
