Twenty-year-old Iliac performs his nightly duty at the parlour. He is neither the most sought-after nor the most desirable masseur, but his sweet, pensive look wins the dubious attentions of a romance novelist. The writer is an abusive, calculating and demanding man whose only preoccupation seems to be how to get the most out of a massage session for the least amount of money but then kindness is something Iliac rarely experiences. His girlfriend, a bar girl working in Japan, demands sex but shows little affection, and his family insists he go home to help with the embalming rituals for his father's remains.
