In Tokyo, sociology student Akiko (Rin Takanashi) moonlights as a high-end prostitute. Her jealous boyfriend, Noriaki (Ryō Kase) is suspicious, but does not know about her work as a prostitute. One night, she is assigned to Takashi (Tadashi Okuno), an elderly former university professor who is more interested in making her dinner than having sex. The morning after their unconsummated night, Takashi drives Akiko to school for her exams. While waiting in the car for her, he encounters Noriaki, who assumes Takashi is her grandfather and asks permission to marry her. Takashi does not correct Noriaki's assumption and assures him he isn't ready for marriage. Akiko returns from her test to find Takashi and Noriaki still talking in the car. The three of them ride together toward a bookstore and while en route Noriaki, who owns a garage, diagnoses a problem with the car. He convinces Takashi to drive it to his garage where he replaces a fan belt-all the while not realizing that Takashi was Akiko's client. At the garage, they encounter a former student of Takashi's and Akiko worries he will reveal the truth to Noriaki. Takashi drops Akiko at the bookstore and returns home. Soon afterward, he receives a panicked phone call from Akiko and returns to the bookstore to pick her up. Her mouth is bloodied, apparently from an attack by Noriaki, although she does not provide any details. Takashi and Akiko are not home for long when Noriaki arrives, threatening them over the apartment intercom and banging on the door. She cowers on the couch. Takashi peers out his window to see what Noriaki is doing. In the film's final shot, a stone or brick comes through the window and Takashi falls to the floor, although it's unclear whether he has been struck

"A bold trio of stories about love and loss ... [that] was a defining event of the art-house boom of the 90s. The films are named for the colors of the French flag and stand for the tenets of the French Revolution: liberty, equality, and fraternity--but that hardly explains their enigmatic beauty and rich humanity. Set in Paris, Warsaw, and Geneva, and ranging from tragedy to comedy, Blue, White, and Red ... examine a group of ambiguously interconnected people experiencing profound personal disruptions"--Container
