Margaret finds herself in the glittering labyrinth of Tokyo by night and as a respected English teacher of a Japanese flight attendant academy by day. With little life direction, She searches for meaning with fellow ex-pat Ines in a Japanese dive bar, drinking to remember to forget and losing herself in love hotel encounters with men who satisfy a fleeting craving. When she crosses paths with Kazu, a dashing yakuza, she falls in love with him despite the danger and tradition that hinders their chances of being together. We follow her through the dark and light of love and what it means to find oneself abroad with a youthful abandon.Written by

Original cut of the film which was filmed in 2017 and shelved until its official release in September of 2020 was longer and darker, showing more of a disturbing reality of love hotels, and with more graphic and longer sex and nudity scenes. However some time before release the film was cut down in order to tone it down and attract more wider audience. This is also why most of Alexandra Daddario's nude scenes were heavily cut down. For example, originally the "sex montage" was longer and it showed her character having rough sex with more men and it also included some topless scenes from her. Despite the rumors there never was any full frontal or lesbian scenes filmed with her. Reportedly, original cut was about 45 minutes longer than final version. See more »

Boring & Irritating
If it wasn't for the few Alexandra's nude scenes, it would be a 1 star movie
