In 1971, Nikkatsu launched its iconic "Roman Porno" film series and then steadily churned out hundreds of softcore films throughout the 70s and 80s. The series elevated pink films to a new level of profile and popularity with both commercial audiences and critics. To mark the 45th anniversary of Roman Porno, in 2016 the studio commissioned five films for the Roman Porno Reboot Project, with each filmmaker reimagining and reinterpreting the genre in his own way for the present day.
J-Horror master Nakata Hideo (Ring) unfolds a triangle of infatuation, jealousy and lust in White Lily. Haruka (Asuka Rin) finds comfort in her intimate relationship with her teacher Tokiko (Yamaguchi Kaori), a celebrated ceramicist who likes to indulge in sex and alcohol. However, Haruka's fragile happiness is upturned when Tokiko shifts interest to a young man (Machii Shouma) and invites him into their lives.
