A case of stolen identity and one determined bride-to-be intersect in this comedic escapade from famed Japanese filmmaker Kenji Uchida.
Struggling actor Sakurai (Masato Sakai) is out of work, out of luck and can't even succeed at taking his own life. When a mysterious man slips and falls at the bathhouse, Sakurai switches locker keys and identities with the man, who turns out to be a hit man named Kondo (Teruyuki Kagawa). His memory lost in the fall, Kondo begins piecing 'his' life as Sakurai back together with the help of Kanae (Ryoko Hirosue), a young woman he meets in the hospital, who is determined to find a husband. Meanwhile, Sakurai, posing as Kondo, incurs the wrath of ornery gangsters. As the truth about Kondo and Sakurai comes to light, they must scramble to resolve the chaos of this topsy- turvy chain of events.
