In a rain drenched Tokyo, from a high rise apartment, Eko complicates her life by publishing a Call for Dreams ad in the newspaper. She visits strangers who leave descriptions of dreams on her analogue answering machine, and carries a task in relation to their recording as a form of fantasy deciphering ritual. Details accumulate to a network of dreams involving her neighbour, a Russian mobster, a female body builder, an elderly woman and an Israeli detective investigating a murder in Tel Aviv, in a story that unfolds in parallel lines
