A young Japanophile Belgian woman in Tokyo falls into a whirlwind romance with a Francophile Japanese student. Her head filled with dreams, Amélie, 20, goes back to Japan, where she spent her childhood. To earn a living, she decides to give private classes in French and meets Rinri, her first and only student, a young Japanese man with whom she soon has an intimate relationship.
