Meet Elizabeth, a privileged, spoiled rich party girl from America’s Los Angeles, who has decided that in order to prove to her parents she isn’t a slacker, a year or two living and working in Japan will be the perfect pit-stop for her and boyfriend / future husband, Eddie. Life overseas will all be a breeze, easy money, and fun, right? WRONG. Not only does living abroad come with its share of challenges, it also comes with culture shock and danger as her unresolved substance abuse problems and craving for excitement get her into trouble and put a strain on her relationship. Will it survive? Her brushes with the underworld place her in life-threatening situations that can get her chopped up and dumped into the East Sea, because somewhere along the way, she has made enemies uninterested in fun and games! Based on and a true story and real-life events
