Although Juri is young, he lives in constant fear of dying. Nightly panic attacks for him are routine – but one night he meets a dark figure who claims to be Death incarnate. So begins a bizarro-Faustian trip together through the night, during which Juri meets Nina and falls in love with her. But come dawn, one of them must die.
