FULL SYNOPSIS

In an era where juvenile delinquency in Japan has hit an all-time high, writer/director Jean-Pierre Limosin tells the tale of an aimless 20-year-old who is faced with the choice of walking two distinctly disparate paths in life. Naoki has proven himself a miserable failure at both school and life; unemployable and socially incapable, the shiftless young man soon determines to make a name for himself in the Japanese underworld. Now, despite his mother's objections, Naoki leaves home for a yearlong apprenticeship in the Japanese Mafia. Over the course of the next 12 months, the young man who could never find his way in life will be forced to choose between devoting himself to a life of crime and struggling to remain righteous in a world consumed by selfishness and greed. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
