Asuka has an easy life, a job in a fish factory, and a fiancé, Taki, who’s also her boss. One day, she encounters a Kappa, a water creature living in a lake, and realizes that it is the reincarnation of Aoki, her first love. As she hides Aoki, Asuka must decide what is most important to her.
Craving a little spice in your life? Then you might try immersion in this riotous “pink musical,” directed by legendary pinku eiga director Shinji Imaoka and shot by none other than Wong Kar-wai’s fabled DP Christopher Doyle. Get ready for sex, sea creatures, reincarnation, and European synth-pop!
