When I Get Home, My Wife Always Pretends to be Dead

Jun returns from work to find his wife Chie collapsed in the hall seemingly dead.  She then pops back to life giggling and so begins a strange daily ritual of increasingly elaborate and often hilarious death scenes upon Jun’s return home. When asked why, Chie simply answers; “the moon is beautiful”. Jun begins to worry about the future of the marriage, but there is a secret behind Chie’s mysterious behavior and wild screwball comedy soon gives way to moving celebration of married love.

Based on a true story. Funny, touching, insightful and featuring charming performances from its leads.
