Teo is a medical student who lives with his mother, Patricia. He doesn't have any friends, but is fond of a cadaver in school, whom he has named Gertrude. One evening at a party, he meets an extremely social and free-spirited woman named Clarice and decides that he must make her his. He kidnaps and drugs Clarice, taking her away from Rio to Terseopolis. How will Teo pull off his plan? Won't Clarice's family realize she's disappeared and try and find her? Perfect Days recounts Teo's psychopathic, violent journey to make sure he is Clarice's companion as long as she lives.
