Zorg is an aspiring writer making a living as a handyman in a seaside resort. One day, Betty, a volatile and impulsive woman turns up and the two begin a passionate love affair. While the two spend all their time together, Betty’s state of mind begins to spiral out of control, and she descends into a state of unreachable madness. In growing despair, Zorg tries desperately to hold their love together. Love embraces and destructs at the same time.

Adapted from Japanese literary master Junichiro Tanizaki’s famous novel of the same title with a script written by Japanese film master Shindo Kaneto, Manji refers to the four-pronged Buddhist swastika that symbolises prosperity, and is a metaphor for the four leads of this film.
Sonoko lives with her lawyer husband Kotaro in a state of social respectability and private ennui until she meets Mitsuko while attending a local art school. Spellbound by Mitsuko’s beauty, Sonoko starts a fiery affair with Mitsuko, who is already engaged to Eijiro. As Mitsuko’s beauty bewitches Kotaro, the four get deliriously entangled in a web of desire, exploitation, jealousy and suicide.
