Director: Katsuhito Ishii.
After it failed in actor’s dream, 25-year-old Kinuta does nothing but going to pachinko parlor every day. Deceived by a young hoodlum, he is even burdened with a large sum of debt. Kinuta starts a high paid job to carry “things” from the underworld for the debt repayment. The so-called “smuggler” job is to carry and dispose of dangerous things. One day, he is asked to carry a dead body… Now the outsider must face to a situation of live or death. “Don’t be buried in the undesirable everyday life and turn into the scum o the earth.” At the crucial moment in his life, the weakest hero Kinuta rises up and takes action. “You can’t just run away all the time!” Being surrounded by the impressive characters from underworld, Kinuta stands on his own feet at the very first time in his life and accomplish a miracle.
