In the near future, a renowned scientist Dr Atsuko Chiba has invented a revolutionary new psychotherapy treatment, allowing her to enter people's dreams and explore their unconscious thoughts. Yet in the wrong hands, the device could be devastating, allowing the user to completely annihilate a dreamer's personality.

When one of the prototypes is stolen, Dr Chiba must enter the dangerous dream world under her exotic alter-ego, code name “PAPRIKA,” in an attempt to discover who is behind the plot to undermine her invention.
