Rated TBC by the BBFC


Tetsuya Mariko co-writes and directs this violent Japanese drama. The film follows a pair of brothers on very different paths. Teenager Taira Ashihara (Yûya Yagira) leaves town just before the coming of age festival and embarks on a journey of self-destruction, picking fights with whoever he meets and taking a beating along the way. As he continues down this path of violence, Taira is joined by youngster Yuya Kitahara (Masaki Suda) who, although cowardly at first, soon finds himself drawn in by the chaos of Taira's mindless rampage. Meanwhile, Shota (Nijiro Murakami) hopelessly searches for his violent brother Taira.
