Synopsis

Thomas Thomas is a 32-year-old man suffering from acute agoraphobia. For eight years, he has neither left his home nor let anyone in. His only contact with other people is through the computer screen, which allows a two-way audio-video connection. His insurance company handles most aspects of his life, including getting his vacuum robot repaired and administering to his mental well-being. Thomas is almost happy in this deliberate self-imprisonment. He finds virtual pleasure with an interactive "sextoon" game featuring Clara, a large-breasted animation in a cute bellhop outfit. But his shrink turns his world inside out by signing him up for an internet dating club just at the time his insurance agent informs him he is eligible to receive the services of prostitutes specially trained to handle the psychologically impaired. And thus begins the invasion...
