Suzuki Shizuka is an office lady at a large corporation who is treated by a hypnotist and left under the spell. Thereafter she cannot but sings and dances whenever she hears any melody whatsoever. Shizuka heads back to the hypnotist for relief, but he is nowhere to be found when he is needed the most.

“A funny, fast-paced and deliriously joyful update of classic musicals featuring a delightful lead performance from Ayaka Miyoshi.” – JCCC Canada
