What happens when green tea meets milk?
Find out as four young urban nomads find themselves in Tokyo – a city spinning with pop culture and ancient traditions.
In particular, viewers follow:
- a quirky Austrian artist drawn to the offbeat Japanese woman he met at New York’s Chelsea Hotel and a mysterious monument he discovers in Tokyo
- a young Japanese woman who finds freedom in the role of Elevator Girl, where her many choices are reduced to “up” and “down”
- a radio English teacher from New York who falls in love with a rogue salaryman
Spirits live, cultures clash, and twains meet in this hip, atmospheric, and truly original film.
Leza was the co-author of this project with Edgar Honetschläger, which was funded by the Austrian Ministry of Arts, Japan Foundation, and Bank of Osaka.
