Rintaro (Chavetaro Ishizaki) is a lonely guy who lives with a life-size sex doll named Ibuki (played, at times, by Rin Sakuragi). As far as Rintaro is concerned, his relationship is completely normal. He eats with the doll, goes on dates and enjoys numerous “intimate” moments with her. But once Ritaro decides to “cheat” with a real woman, his latex fantasy life begins to unravel.
