Synopsis
"Somato" is a term referring to the phenomenon at the brink of death where a person sees their whole life pass before their eyes. Those who are lost and happen to stumble into the Somato Incorporated are guided by Kaminuma by the entreaty, "Take as much time as you'd like to look back over your life" and then are handed a set of DVDs equal in number to each of your age. They contain parts of your life you had forgotten and your life as viewed by others. What's more, you get to learn the shocking truths you were not capable of knowing before, forcing you to face up to facts so shocking they may never recover. After watching every volume, what are people left thinking? Are they left with a sense of despair? Or hope.


주마등이란 사람이 죽기전 본다는 일생의 기억의 되풀이현상을 형태로 한 현상이 다. 우연히「주마등 주식회사」에 들어선 자는 안내인 카미누마에게「당신의 인 생, 마음에 들때까지 되돌아 보세요」라는 말과 함께 자신의 나이수와 같은 매수 의 DVD를 받는다. DVD에는「잊었던 자신의 인생」과「타인의 눈으로 본 자신 의 인생」이 담겨 있다. 지금까지「자신이 몰랐던 충격의 사실」을 보는 것으로 최악의 상황으로 치닫는 충격적인 사실과 대면할 지도 모른다. 전부를 본 후 사람 은 무엇을 생각할까? 그를 기다리고 있는것은 희망일까, 아니면 절망일까…!?


跑馬燈現象據說只有人在瀕死前才看得到,形容一生記憶瞬間倒帶在眼前的現象。誤闖入跑馬燈株式會社迷路的人,指引人「神沼」會跟他們說「請慢慢地回看自己的人生到滿足為止」並交給他們與年齡相等張數的DVD。影片中有自己忘記的人生片段,也有以第三者觀看你的人生片段。透過這些影片很多人看到自己在人生中不知道的衝擊的事實而沮喪不已。看完影片的人們到底會想什麼?在影片那端等待他們的是希望還是絕望?!
