Abstract: Having lost his job and his girlfriend, Kazuo becomes a member of a religious sect, after seeing the Guru heal an old woman in a wheelchair. He soon discovers the secrets of success in the sect are much the same as the business world, the power of suggestion playing a larger role than faith. When the Guru unexpectedly dies, Kazuo is nominated to continue the sect as the new Guru.
