Synopsis:
Mr. Shimokawa, a washed-up Manga artist, loses his inspiration and instructed by his editor to bring his current serial to an end. Sick with dismay, he stumbles into a public restroom to vomit. He looks up to see pornographic graffiti on the restroom wall and is overcome with nausea. Feeling burnt out, he searches for meaning and inspiration. He finds himself drawn back to the thoughts inspired by the graffiti. He lets his newly liberated dirty thoughts take form at his drawing table. By fortune, he encounters an old acquaintance who invites him to submit illustrations for his adult magazine. Excited by the prospect, Shimokawa is inspired to draw. Returning to the restroom that inspired him, he takes out a marker and begins to draw explicit graffiti. A woman sees him in the stall and cries out an alarm. Shimokawa finds himself trapped by a crowd intent on catching a pervert.
