After his shot at a record deal falls through, Jun transfers to sleepy Nagoya and begins busking songs by his favourite 1970s glam rock band, Exne Kedy. The music catches the eye of fellow fan Ibuki and the pair soon fall in love over their shared musical taste. But as responsibilities mount, they drift apart… Until Exne Kedy announces a reunion tour. Part teenage romance, part fictitious vehicle for Ide Kensuke and producer Yo Ishihara’s latest project (of Boris and Ogre You Asshole fame), Daisuke Miyazaki’s PLASTIC is a colorful, rock-inflected coming-of-age tale.
