Movie Description

Visionary director Satoshi Kon spins a dream-like animated adventure full of manic energy and visual flights of fancy. Set in the near future, a new psychotherapy treatment has been invented that allows users to enter people's dreams. Dr. Atsuko Chiba is a scientist who goes by the alter ego, "Paprika." In her new guise, Paprika is able to dive deep into the dreams of others. After a device called the "DC Mini" is stolen, Paprika finds herself alarmed by the potential consequences. In the wrong hands, the DC Mini has the power to destroy minds. Now it's up to Paprika to enter dreams and discover who exactly is responsible.
