pink film, the durable Japanese soft-core genre, with the title "Horny Home Tutor: Teacher’s Love Juice" but it developed into a cult hit and the producers allowed director Meike Mitsuru to expand it into its present form.
Sachiko Hanai (
Emi Kuroda) works as a call girlor soap girlspecializing in sexual roleplay, or cosplay. In her work, Sachiko portrays a home-tutor, hence the film's original title, "Horny Home Tutor: Teacher’s Love Juice". While at a café after one job, she witnesses an altercation between two men, one a North Koreanand the other from the Middle Eastwho turn out to be spies in the middle of a transaction. When the argument escalates to gun-play, Sachiko foolishly starts to take a cell-phone picture of the incident and is shot in the forehead. Rather than killing her, the bullet lodges in her brain and gives her extraordinary mental powers, including the ability to understand languages of which she previously had no knowledge, arcane philosophical insight, advanced mathematical knowledge, and ESP. After fleeing from the scene, she finds a metal cylinder in her pocket which contains a cloned copy of the finger of United States President George W. Bush.
While waiting in Sachiko's house to reclaim the finger, the North Korean falls in love with her. Sachiko befriends and makes love to a philosophy professor and the professor hires her as his son's tutor. The professor's wife becomes suspicious and goes to a detective, who happens to be the man who shot Sachiko. Because Bush's fingerprint is capable of unleashing a nuclear holocaust, the North Korean wants the cylinder back. In the end he takes Sachiko and she uses her powers to direct them to a cave where they find a machine that can decide the fate of the world.
