Rosa arrives in Tokyo to learn the art of filleting fish from the famous Master Kon, Japan´s best fish chef. Because of the difficulty communicating Rosa grows more and more lonely behind the heaps of glistening fish on the working table – waiting to be cleaned. Broke and desperate, Rosa starts work in a night club, entertaining Japanese business men. After a horrible night when one of the guests assaults her, she ends up at the fishing pond of the restaurant, learns to understand the fish and is finally accepted by Master Kon.
