    • Synopsis
    • Takanori, the son of a yakuza boss, is offered as a scapegoat to another syndicate and sent to jail for a crime he didn’t commit. Two years later, he is released from prison. After reuniting with his girlfriend, Takanori meets with his older brother Satoshi. He tells Takanori of his plan to rob the safe of the Yoshidas, a local family running a loan shark operation. Asked to join in the robbery, Takanori balks. “Worm out and your girl will pay with her life!” his brother threatens. With no option, Takanori agrees to take part in the theft.
      Breaking into the Yoshidas’ home, they steal their safe. However, during the heist, they kill Shoji, the family’s youngest son. Afterward, Satoshi admits to Takanori that their parents were planning to steal it for themselves the next day. Worried they wouldn’t share in the haul, he thought to jump the gun and take it for himself. Now resigned to a life of crime, Takanori joins his family on their true-to-life tale into the black humor hell of unremitting crime and conscienceless murder!
