Ninko is a Buddhist monk who becomes embarrassed for failing to resist women. After his troubled encounter with a mysterious masked woman, he undertakes a journey into a village haunted by a rapacious mountain goddess who kills men to absorb their energy. Will Ninko be able to purify himself and walk out free? Niwatsukino makes a bold statement in his visually surprising debut feature, offering gutsy storytelling through a creative mix of Japanese erotica with a dash of folkloric fantasy.
