Nain souruzu - From acclaimed
Japanese filmmaker Toshiaki Toyoda comes this violent road-film about 9
fugitives trying to escape their past in modern Japan. Beautiful, surreal and
Nine convicts escape from prison; most are convicted murders.
They commandeer a van from a strip club. Their plan is to find a stash of
counterfeit money that a deranged cell mate told them about, divide it, then
part ways. They make it to the site where the money is supposed to be hidden,
but they find the site vacant of any cash.
Packing themselves back into the van, they head towards the
suburbs and the city, with the men parting from the others' company one by one
to attempt to reconcile tragic pasts and make the best of an uncertain -- but
increasingly bleak -- future. Will it end well for any of them?
