One night, Saya leads Aiko out and asks her to dig a hole. From that hole a soldier who died in World War II rises from his slumber. This starts a succession of appearances by young soldiers who died in the War. Like zombies they gather, keeping to the darkness of the house’s basement because, like Dracula, they will be "killed" if sunlight falls on them. They talk with Aiko about the days they spent fighting for their wives and children, for their siblings and their country. As the soldiers find hope in a plan to fulfill their duty by striking back at America, Aiko devises a plan by which she can also test her husband’s love, and thus kill two birds with one stone.
The plan is to let herself be taken hostage and have the ransom request be that her husband Ichiro provide a bomber, with which the soldiers can then strike back at America. The time limit for the ransom is three days. To save his wife, Ichiro reluctantly agrees to the demand.
Meanwhile, we learn that Saya had a secret. On of the soldiers is her former fiance who died in WWII. The reason he has remained in the form of a zombie for these 60 years is the strength of Saya’s love for him. After her fiance’s death she married with Makoto but never got over her love for her first fiance and eventually dies, but only to remain in limbo in this world. Makoto followed Saya in death and became a ghost as well. It was Makoto who killed Saya because of her undying love of her first fiance and because she would not reciprocate his love. And now as a ghost he continues to pursue her.
On the third day of the kidnapping, Ichiro and Makoto lie that the bomber has been made ready in order to get their wives back from the zombie soldiers. They call the three soldiers up into the house, which has been curtained to keep out the sunlight. From there we hear the roar of the phantom bomber taking off into the sunset, carrying with it the unrequited hearts of the soldiers, of Saya, of Aiko, of Makoto and of Ichiro.
