A group of brilliant scientists have developed a new form of psychotherapy with the invention of a machine which enables a person to enter another’s dreams. When the device is stolen by a "dream terrorist," it is up Atsuko Chiba, a scientist under the code name Paprika to track down the machine and save the world from madness.
"In Treasure Town, where the moon smiles and young boys can fly, life can be both gentle and brutal. This is never truer than for our heroes, Black and White, two street urchins who watch over the city, doing battle with an array of old-world Yakuza and alien assassins vying to rule the decaying metropolis. Tekkonkinkreet is a dynamic tale of brotherhood that addresses the faults of present day society, true love lost, and the kindness of the human heart."
