The film takes us to a tea ceremony in modern-day Japan. The phantasy and the effusive imagination of the guests – a European among them – are inspired by an erotic story about the Japanese bodypainting artist Seikichi who, at the end of the last century, is obsessed by his art and passion. Eroticism, the art of Japanese bodypainting, humour and mysterious tranformation mingle those present in the intimate world of their phantasies.
