[ Story ]

Based on a story by Japan's best-known author of horror tales, Rampo Edogawa, this picture is about a young girl, Aki (Mako Midori), and her terrible experiences.
She is a professional model and one day goes to a gallery where sculpture for which she modeled is on display. There she finds that one of the works is being handled by a blind man (Eiji Funakoshi). He is running his fingers over the statue, caressing it in such a way that Aki finds herself physically responding.
The next day a car arrives to pick her up. She thinks that it is to take her to her modeling appointment but before she knows what is happening, is chloroformed and awakes in a large, tightly- closed room from which there is no escape.
It is a strange room, filled with colors, its walls, floor, ceiling, covered with reproductions of every conceivable part of the human anatomy - forests of arms and legs, plains of breasts and thighs. And among it all appears the lord of this weird domain - the blind man.
She tries to escape but a thicket of hands prevents her. She faints with horror only to awaken to more terror. She has been trapped by the blind beast and will spend the remainder of her life with him. There is no escape and she sinks uncomprehendingly into a world of unending sadism and masochism.
