Tom, an American thirty-something who has recently moved to Tokyo for what he thinks is just a temporary gig, struggles with feelings of isolation in a land where he doesn’t speak the language and all of his relationships play out online. He’s self-absorbed and pretends to be a cooler version of himself on the ‘net.
Then he meets Saki, a free-spirited Japanese woman who teaches him about Tokyo and relating to others in a more personal way. She tries to help him live in the present and communicate with words, not text on a screen. Can he learn to relate to her, or is a make believe life on the web too tempting?
