Inspired by the popular manga of the same name, Yasuo Baba’s quirky satirical sci-fi sees kooky twenty-something Japanese bar hostess Mayumi (Ryoko Hirosue) fitted with a wetsuit and sent back to 1990 in a time-travelling washing machine. Seeking to rescue her lost-in-time mother, while attempting to mend of her country’s ailing economy, Mayumi’s future and that of Japan itself depends on her finding the bumbling, younger incarnation of the man who sent her back in the first place (Hiroshi Abe).
