The Stripper and the Yakuza
Bella's life is full of excitement, fun, and travel as she's working as a freelance exotic dancer. Her big dream was always to travel to Japan, and she said yes to her Russian friend's, Natalia’s, proposal, who offered help finding a place for her in a Japanese hostess club. Upon her arrival, Bella is full of hopes and excitements, but soon she discovers the world of the workaholic Japanese customers, their lack of speaking English, and the games between clients and their obedient hostesses. By her nature, Bella is always honest and straight forward, but in Japan this in not the required behaviour. Bella becomes more and more exhausted at work, bodily and mentally, and she goes through a culture shock and feels rejected in the country of her dreams.
One day, Yoshihiro, a pleasant customer who speaks good English, appears in the club. Bella immediately spots his yakuza tattoo and realises he's a gangster, but instead of being scared, she becomes curious.
Bella is independent, free, careless. A stripper. Yoshihiro is strong, dominant, loyal. A yakuza. Can their two different worlds meet and develop a lifelong relation?
