One man’s hell at the hands of the health establishment in Japan. It begins when he discovers radishes sprouting from his shins. Admitted to hospital, he finds himself in the grip of bizarre forces: a self-propelled hospital bed, doctors intent on curing the wrong ailments, infant ghosts and mysterious windstorms.
