Satoshi Kon's follow-up to 2003's beloved Tokyo Godfathers, this fantastical sci-fi anime centres on a machine that allows therapists to enter their patient's dreams. When the machine is stolen, all hell breaks loose, and only Paprika, a young therapist, can stop it.

For an alternate set of exciting alter egos, see Satoshi Kon's Paprika, a brilliant anime feature.
