A four-square-metre box with a screen and computer. This is what Japanese cyber-cafes offer, around the clock. Most customers just spend an hour or two here. But there are thousands who spend their lives in them. The Manboo in Tokyo has its own permanent residents: Masata and Hitomi. It is a home for them, even though they sleep on the floor.

Jérôme Plan has been television reporter for a decade in France, China, Israel and South Africa. Lost in Manboo is his first documentary.
