Mathematics is first and foremost pursuit of absolute truth and beauty. This is the story of a mathematician who has found, after many years of hard work, the ultimate formula of love. At first, he was thrilled that his formula would benefit people, bringing them eternal love, youth and happiness. But later he discovers the flip side of the formula. It could be used in the wrong way, a weapon against humanity. And so forces of evil are now after the mathematician. They want to take possession of the magic powers of his formula and use them in order to achieve their sinister goals. The mathematician knows that there is no escape for him, and he is ready to die. But he has to protect his formula. The mathematician has a secret love affair with a beautiful Japanese woman, Mariko. They decide that he will tattoo the magic formula on her body.
