Nanayomachi's tale is built around a spiritual and emotional journey. The story follows a young 29-year-old woman, Saiko, who has just arrived in Thailand. Why she's there is unexplained. A vacation? Running away? It's left up to the viewer. Escaping from a suspect cab ride, she runs into the woods - straight into the arms of French heartthrob, Colin Gregoire, who - as the character Greg - takes her to where he lives and studies - a small school of traditional Thai massage. Greg, the master masseuse Amari, her son and an old maid are the only people living in this enchanting place in the heart of the forest. Even the strange taxi driver, who happens to be the Amari's brother, reappears. Together they all form an odd pseudo family. They do not understand each other's languages - Thai, French, English and Japanese - but through the touch of Thai massage, they communicate nonetheless. Mystical and physical happenings, random meetings - all build to
revelations for all involved. What could have easily become a shallow new age screed carries a subtle profundity
