The 'goddess' in this film refers to the Citroën DS (nicknamed 'Déesse'), a famous French car first produced in the fifties. The story concerns J. M., a young, well-to-do Japanese man who desires owning a Déesse. When one comes up for sale in Australia via the internet, J. M. travels there to buy it. Upon reaching his destination, however, he finds the seller and his wife dead and their house inhabited by a seventeen-year-old girl. He initially runs out in horror but returns in order to find out if the car is still there. He and the girl soon afterwards undertake a five-day drive into the outback. It also becomes 'a trip back in time into the early youth of the girl and into her family's chronicle'.
