Summary
Director Shion Sono's loose adaptation of the Japanese manga of the same name, follows two teenagers' attempts to survive the aftermath of Japan's 2011 tsunami. Abandoned by his mother, 14-year-old Sumida (Shota Sometani) lives in a boathouse beside a lake and dreams of living a normal life free from his father (Ken Mitsuishi)'s casual beatings. Sharing his dreams of normality is his classmate Chazawa (Fumi Nikaido), who has a crush on Sumida, even though her feelings are not reciprocated. As the pair try to come to terms with their seemingly bleak futures, events come to a head when Sumida's father taunts him to excess, resulting in a fatally violent altercation. With his dreams now dashed, but eager to make amends to society for his actions, Sumida takes to the streets as a self-styled vigilante, dispensing 'justice' with the aid of a kitchen knife
