- Amélie, a dreamy and romantic young Belgian woman, arrives in Japan to begin work as a translator for the giant Yumimoto Corporation. For Amélie, who spent her childhood in Japan, this is a dream come true. It is her chance to become a “real Japanese.”
Eager to please her bosses and co-workers, Amélie diligently accomplishes her daily tasks with invention and enthusiasm, but, unfamiliar with the customs of the Japanese workplace, she commits a series of cultural missteps and is singled out as a deviant within the company hierarchy, suffering a string of demotions.
The harder she tries, the more wrathful her superiors seem to become. Unable to stop her downfall, Amélie suddenly stumbles upon her own extraordinary means of liberation.
