CHAN is a Chinese factory worker who lives alone. Every night, she suffers from horrific nightmares involving the woman in the apartment next door, a Japanese office lady. ​Apart from greeting each other in the hallway, they keep to themselves as they don't seem to have much in common. The distance between them is somewhat maintained by the fact that every single night, YAMADA appears in CHAN's horrific nightmares.
