A world of regular routine is turned upside-down in this outrageous fantasy-comedy.

Kogure is a loner who works in a factory that produces paper clips by hand under an overbearing manager. One day, he comes home from work to find a strange woman who speaks an unintelligible dialect inside his apartment. The next day, a man who appears to be the woman's father settles in as well. Their relationship gradually changes after a certain incident … Shades of Luis Buñuel and David Lynch add to the bite of this satirical attack on capitalism.
