Paprika from director Satoshi Kon (Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers) takes a mindbending trip into the world of dreams. A new psychotherapy device enables therapists to enter, participate in, and record patients’ dreams.  The Tokyo research lab is thrown into chaos when one of these new devices is stolen by a “psycho-terrorist” who seems bent on breaking down the barriers between the waking world and that of dreams.  Brilliant scientist Atsuko Chiba takes the form of a femme-fatale codenamed “Paprika” to enter the dreamworld, and with the help of a police detective haunted by the memory of an unsolved murder case, tries to uncover who is behind the plot.
