A sex-musical directed by legendary pink director Shinji Imaoka, shot by award-winning cameraman Christopher Doyle with music by French/German synthpop band Stereo Total.
Asuka works in a lakeside fish factory. She is just about to be married to her boss. One day, she encounters a Kappa, a water creature living in the lake and learns that it is the reincarnation of Aoki, her first love.
What ensues is a zany spectacle of love, music and sex.
