Fox-fairies are evil demons from Japanese folklore, who rob men of their lives. Liza, a 30-year-old nurse, goes in search of love, but her ill-fated admirers all die on their first date.
Liza has taken care of Marta, widow of the former Japanese ambassador, for the last 12 years. Liza's only companion is her imaginary friend, Tomy Tani, the ghost of a Japanese pop singer from the 1950s. It's her birthday, and so Liza goes to a Mekk Burger's to find romance. While she's away, Marta dies. Jealous relatives report Liza to the police for murdering Marta to inherit her apartment. Sergeant Zoltan is put on the case. The policeman rents a room from Liza so he can keep a closer eye on his suspect. Zoltan falls slowly in love with Liza.
