Isolation of 1/880000

##
Teramitsu is revising for the entrance exams to Tokyo's Waseda University for the umpteenth time, but there are more porno mags on this shy nerd's desk than there are notes and textbooks. This man with a limp addicted to sex is the protagonist of Sogo Ishii's style-defining medium-length film Isolation of 1/880000. It goes without saying that this lament of a man repressed already builds towards a violent outburst.
