The plot follows 34-year-old Nakoshi Susumu. He spends his days among the homeless and sleeping in his car. Susumu is being pursued by a medical student who wants to pay Nakoshi a substantial sum in return for agreeing to a trepanation* Procedure.

Susumu initially refuses, but after losing his car, he eventually agrees. He wakes up and finds that nothing has changed, but after a while he discovers that he can see that Homunculus** in every human being.

*trephination, Also known as trepanation in anthropology and archeology, it is the oldest surgical procedure for which archaeological evidence exists. The procedure is performed by drilling a hole in the human skull using a surgical instrument called a trephine. The word comes from the Greek term Trypanon, meaning “to drill”.

**The term homunculus here refers to cortical homunculus (not to be confused with the small clay statues of miniature humans, which is the other meaning of the word). Cortical homunculus is a pictorial representation of the relative size of sensory areas in the brain that correspond to specific sensory parts of the body. The depiction manifests itself as a distorted human form.
