Six strangers meet at an underground sex club in Japan for a night of anonymous pleasure. While first-timers and regulars collide, each member’s attitude towards sex and satisfaction becomes challenged as their kinks and inhibitions begin to reveal more than they were initially willing to let on.

Adapted from the critically acclaimed play of the same name, LOVE’S WHIRLPOOL explores Japan’s fuzoku (sex industry) with candor, humor and freewheeling indecency. “Stylishly shot and explicit,” Daisuke Miura’s foray into the city’s erotic underbelly provides “great thrills, both erotic and comedic, as well as genuine emotion” (Screen Anarchy).
