Plot – Spoilers:
A secretive Japanese company churns out cyborg sex dolls with their memories erased. One of these, Pinocchio 964 is dumped by a client for his inability to get hard.

Pinocchio stumbles through the streets before being picked up by a young girl Himiko who appears to have been a nurse at the sex company before she was chucked out. Himiko spends her days drawing helpful maps of the city for cyborgs like Pinocchio. Guess in the early ’90s, long before Google Maps, even other maps were unavailable.

Himiko takes Pinocchio to her hideaway and promises to nurse him back to being fully functional. While going about this, she also displays her unique ability to vomit copious amounts that are disproportionate to her body mass. Meanwhile, the company wants Pinocchio back, maybe to repair him.

Every character in the film is often gasping or wailing their lines in exaggerated Japanese craziness that makes this a must-watch, if you’re into that sort of thing.
