Lost Girls and Love Hotels
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.
