Dr. Bragan (James Craig ) is a NASA mathematician working on a mission to outer space. The stress of the mission causes him to have a mental breakdown, so his assistant, Dr. Paul Nakamura (Yagi), suggests he takes a vacation in Japan to recuperate.
In Japan, Dr. Bragan stays at a hotel with his beautiful assistant, Dr. Hanamura (Kami), to begin experiments on a plant he brought from America. The plant is a Venus flytrap , and the scientist crosses it with a Japanese carnivorous plant to create a creature that is almost human.
