Seven days to the Twenty-first Century. Somewhere in Taiwan, the rain won't let up. A mysterious disease reaches epidemic proportions.
A man in an apartment refuses to leave the quarantine zone. A plumber has been sent to check a leak for the downstairs neighbour. He leaves a sizeable hole in the middle of the man's room.
The man doesn't seem to mind the hole much. In fact, he finds the hole useful as a means of learning about his downstairs neighbour, a woman who stockpiles toilet paper. He quickly becomes fascinated by her.
But, one day, she gets sick...
