A gallery attendant at the Hermitage. A young jazz buff in Tokyo. A crooked British lawyer in Hong Kong. A disc jockey in Manhattan. A physicist in Ireland. An elderly woman running a tea shack in rural China. A cult-controlled terrorist in Okinawa, Japan. A musician in London. A transmigrating spirit in Mongolia. They influence each other in mysterious ways, creating an unusual experience of cause and effect.
