JM, a young Japanese salary-man, leads a solitary, uneventful life in Tokyo. But he dreams of owning a very special car – a late ’60’s Citroën, the legendary model DS (in French: Déesse, or “Goddess”). Via the Internet, he makes contact with a potential seller, and flies to Australia to close the deal. At the airport, however, his contact is nowhere to be seen, and when JM goes to visit him at his home, he finds the man and his wife dead, and a young blind girl – BG – guarding a small child.
