  • Orig. Title: Soba

A hotel room. A woman (doll) is waiting for the call from her lover (doll). His arrival and their sexual intercourse are like a ritual for her, which takes her into a floating, pleasing state of mind. She opens herself to the man through sex, while the man/doll considers it all as relieving himself, after which he just vanishes into thin air. The doll remains alone in the empty room, disappointed and hurt.
