One of Japanese director Chusei Sone’s better pinku eiga films of the period, this softcore melodrama features talk-show hostess Maria Mitsui as Akemi, a laboratory technician who spends her evenings spying on her gangster neighbor (Nobutaka Masutomi) as he makes love to his stripper girlfriend (Meika Seri). The objects of Akemi’s voyeuristic attentions learn of her interests and suggest that she’d make a fine prostitute.
