In ancient Rome, renowned architect Lucius is down on his luck. He has been fired because his style of buildings is unfashionable, and all the bathhouses in the city are noisy, boisterous places that no longer prioritize relaxation. To get some peace and quiet, he sinks below the surface of the water, the only place where his fellow bathers' chatter can't reach him, but a powerful drain pulls him into the depths! Upon emerging, he finds himself in a vastly different bathhouse, and though the architect believes it's just the slaves' quarter, he's actually been pulled through time to modern-day Japan! Now, armed with knowledge of these strange new baths, Lucius is determined to restore his reputation and revolutionize the Roman bathing culture!
