Dr. Atsuko Chiba (Megumi Hayashibara) is among an elite group of psychologists and scientists testing the DC-Mini, a device that allows its user to view, record, and interact with patients' dreams.  Although the DC-Mini has not been officially approved for use, Chiba and her colleagues have had successful results with the device -- at least until one is stolen from their laboratory.

Now a madman, most likely another lab employee, is using it to manipulate individuals for their own benefit and amusement.  Chiba takes on her dream world persona, Paprika and enters coworkers' minds to locate the machine's thief.
