Rome in the year 128 AD. Bathhouse architect Lucius Modestus is having trouble coming up with ideas for his future designs. After losing his job for refusing to adapt to the current times, the depressed Roman stops by a strange bathhouse that happens to have a time traveling drain! He is sucked into it and transported to a modern day Japanese bathhouse!
