Leading a lazy life, Fumiya has been a university student for 8 years and owes money to loan sharks. One day, a man named Fukuhara comes to collect the loan, which Fumiya cannot pay. So Fukuhara makes a proposition: He will cancel the debt as long as Fumiya agrees to walk with him across Tokyo to the police station of Kasumigaseki, where he intends to turn himself in for a crime he deeply regrets. Not having much choice, Fumiya accepts the deal. Thus begins their journey which will lead them to various unusual encounters, most of all with themselves. Based on the original novel by Naoki Prize winner Yoshinaga Fujita comes a fascinating, humorous and wildly clever film that is sure to charm you.
With his trusty companion Endo (Matsuo Suzuki - ‘Robogeisha’) in tow, he sets off on a quest for the elusive insect and along the way meets the mysterious Sayoko (Rinko Kikuchi - ‘Norwegian Wood’), a former dominatrix and habitual wrist-cutter who delights in rubbing wasabi into her wounds, as well as a pudgy gang boss yearning for a new life and his trusty assistant, an over-the-top Yakuza (both played by Miki Satoshi regulars Ryo Iwamatsu and Eri Fuse).
