Synopsis: So what do you do if you're bored with life? Uproot yourself and move to Japan, land of the rising sun and of opportunity - a country of suspicious-looking food, cheap beer and karaoke? Some people would hesitate, but not Jamie Schmidt. He lies, cheats and steals his way into a position as an English teacher. After all, how hard can it be to teach your native language? Hard! After encounters with the zany populace of Tokyo including a student obsessed with paint, a psychotic flatmate and an infatuated Tom Selleck fan Jamie wonders if he might not have made a serious mistake. Then the girl of his dreams turns up. It appears that she's everything he ever hoped for - but is she everything she seems to be?
