    Synopsis:
    Based on the original futuristic story, Paprika was written by the great master of Japanese literature, Yasutaka Tsutsui, in 1993 and is the psychedelic story of a female detective who investigates criminal cases by entering the dreams of her subjects. With music composed by Susuma Hirasawa, who also wrote the soundtrack for KON`s award-winning film, Millennium Actress, and equally lauded television series, Paranoia Agent.

    In the near future, a revolutionary new psychotherapy treatment called PT has been invented. Through a device called the "DC Mini" it is able to act as a "dream detective" to enter into people`s dreams and explore their unconscious thoughts. Before the government can pass a bill authorizing the use of such advanced psychiatric technology, one of the prototypes is stolen. In the wrong hands, the potential misuse of the device could be devastating, allowing the user to completely annihilate a dreamer`s personality while they are asleep. Renowned scientist, Dr. Atsuko Chiba, enters the dream world under her exotic alter-ego, Paprika, in an attempt to discover who is behind the plot to undermine the new invention.
