Ten nightmarish, surreal interpretations of novelist Natsume Soseki's Ten Nights of Dreams. Each director creates a unique vision – a 1904 noodle house manned by automatons, a giant tentacled pet, a techno-dancing master sculptor. With the absurd invading the mundane, subconscious creatures coming to life, malleable time and constant disorientation, the dreamworld manifests despite the characters’ perceptions of what appears to be reality.
Many of the shorts feature Soseki and are set in the same period as his career (1903-1916). The writer is portrayed as a troubled figure, haunted by the past, tortured by the present and adrift in the inevitability of fate.
