5,460 yen

A mainstream film which helped make Arisue Go a name widely recognized outside of BDSM circles.

The film is based on an S&M novel written by Oniruku Dan which has reached a cult status in Japan. There have been several prior adaptations of the novel but none before with well known actors and top of the line production and photography.

Wealthy business owner Mt. Toyama's wife Shizuko is an international tango dancer. Her relationship with her workaholic husband has become estranged, and her nights are plagued with sexual fantasies. Shizuko, beautiful and desirable exuding a strong intellect polished by her international experience, becomes the object of Mr.Ippei Tashiro, a 95 years old man known as the "Showa Prince of Darkness." who arranges for a gang leader to kidnap and confine Shizuko for his pleasure.
