On a publicity tour in Japan, Carl, a Canadian author, finds himself falling in love amidst the sacred stages of Noh theatre and the seedy dance clubs in Tokyo, wired on cocaine and sake. His object of affection is the young, seductive actor, Yori, but the affair becomes complicated when Carl?s translator and Yori?s sister, Nushi, becomes entranced with him. As his tour continues, he straddles the fragmentary place between two cultures?one of individuality and directness, the other of tradition and formality?and uncovers the dualities that exist in life and love. Based on The Tale of Genji, one of the world?s oldest pieces of literature, MacIvor?s script takes us into the centre of a clandestine Japan as experienced by the visiting outsider.
