Mayumi and her friend Mai make a killing when they open a barber and beauty shop which serves customers in the nude.
A Japanese "pink" film for Nikkatsu Studio's "Roman Porno" series. Pink film is a broad genre of low budget Japanese softcore films, though often with artistic and visual inventiveness and narrative drive far beyond their American counterparts. Nikkatsu was particularly well known for allowing almost unlimited artistic freedom to filmmakers, as long as they met the studio mandated requirement of four nude or sex scenes per hour of running time.
