A massage therapist specializing in aromatherapy grows obsessed with the musky scent of her boss' athletic teenage son in this dark comedy from director Kota Yoshida (Coming with My Brother!). Yuriko's talent for aromatherapy means her clients are always content, but lately she's been onto a scent that she just can't shake. It's the smell of 17-year-old Takeshi, whose hard work on the soccer field makes him irresistible to Yuriko. At first perplexed by Yuriko's unusual fixation on his body odor, Takeshi eventually grants her permission to smell him whenever the mood takes her. When alluring Iris enters the picture, however, Yuriko is branded a pervert as a tense game of seduction begins to unfold.
