Teenagers Bon and Lin travel to Tokyo to find a lost friend. Since they are both “boys’ love”-manga fanatics, they receive help from a middle-aged man they contacted through a fan forum. What could easily be a smutty journey through Japan’s cultural underbelly turns out to be a hilarious but nonetheless touching story about the search for one’s individuality.
