Comments: For those who've seen Noriko's Dinner Table and wondered what may have happened to the younger sister played by Yuriko Yoshitaka, it may come as no surprise to see her show up naked, tattooed and pierced in this punkish little sideshow. She doesn't have the sexual maturity to make the S&M stuff remotely erotic and the two guys she bounces between are little more than posers, but all the poses are reasonable, and it tried to be cool. It's far more modern and realistic/relatable than a CAT III film. I adore Yoshitaka, so ....

Summary: Looking for thrills, 19-year-old Lui (Yoshitaka Yuriko) moves in with her new boyfriend Ama (Kora Kengo), a pierced and tattooed guy she met at a nightclub. Through Ama, Lui meets sadistic tattoo artist and body piercer Shiba (ARATA), whom she strikes up a relationship with in exchange for body modifications. Floating between the two men, she finds herself falling into a downward spiral of violence, sadomasochism, and alcoholism.
