Amélie, a young Belgian woman, having spent her childhood in Japan, decides to return to live there and try to integrate into Japanese society. She is determined to be a “real Japanese” before her one year contract runs out, though it is precisely this determination that is incompatible with Japanese humility. Though she is hired for a choice position as a translator at an import/export firm, her inability to understand Japanese cultural and business norms and allocation to work for which she is not suited result in increasingly humiliating demotions.

Though Amelie secretly adores her immediate supervisor, Ms Mori, the latter takes sadistic pleasure in belittling Amelie. Mori finally manages to break Amelie’s will by making her the bathroom attendant, and is delighted when Amelie tells her that she will not renew her contract. Amelie realizes that she is finally a real Japanese when she enters the company president’s office “with fear and trembling,” which was possible only because her determination had been broken by Mori’s systematic humiliation.
