Setsuko is seemingly stuck with her life in Tokyo until she is convinced by her niece, Mika, to enrol in an unorthodox English class that requires her to wear a blonde wig and take on an American persona named ‘Lucy.’ The new identity awakens something dormant in Setsuko, and she quickly falls for her American instructor, John. When John suddenly disappears from class, she enlists the help of her sister, Ayako and flies halfway across the world to the outskirts of Southern California in search of John. In a brave new world of tattoo parlours and seedy motels, family ties and past lives are tested as Setsuko struggles to preserve the dream and promise of ‘Lucy.’
