Set in Japan's notorious "soaplands" (where women offer bathing and massage to men as a means of flouting prostitution laws), this tragic tale of lust and obsession follows convicted rapist Ikuo as he is released to the streets and begins stalking his former victim Meiko. Ikuo cannot look into the face of any woman without seeing Meiko's reflection in their eyes, and after attacking a prostitute and a young girl, the sexual predator once again comes face to face with the one girl he cannot and will not forget. Though Ikuo is taken aback to discover that Meiko is now working as a prostitute, Meiko confesses to Ikuo that she longs to escape from her pimp and start a new life. Taking her word to heart, Ikuo is soon planning a getaway for Meiko that could very well end in tragedy for all involved. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
