In Japanese folklore, a ghost that arises from the burial of a pregnant woman is an Ubume.
Akihiko "Kyogokudo" Chuzenji in an exorcist with a twist: he doesn't believe in ghosts. To circumnavigate his clients' inability to come to grips with a problem being their own, he creates fake supernatural explanations - ghosts - that he than "exorcises" by way of staged rituals. His patients' belief that he has vanquished the ghost creating their problems cures them.
In this first adventure, Kyogokudo must unravel the mystery of a woman who has been pregnant for 20 months and find her husband, who disappeared 2 months into the pregnancy.
