The Floating World

14m Short 2021

Ryuki was born into a rich family, but two years ago he lost everything. Like a lot of people with nowhere to go, he ends up in Tokyo’s infamous red-light quarter. He starts working in a cutthroat Host Club where women, mostly prostitutes, come to look for a new boyfriend. He quickly becomes the Number One Host, but he hopes that the secret that already made him lose everything doesn’t ruin this.
