A French corporation seeks to purchase TokyoAnime, a producer of three-dimensional internet software designed to revolutionize the online porn industry. Rivals emerge both within and outside the corporation, complicating the motives and morality of the merger. Assayas finds a way to both indulge in and critique the excesses of sex and violence in the growing new media culture. Intentionally disjointed, the film is structured like an internet browse, in which episodic experience rather than linear narrative progression is the norm.
