Daikoku lives his life as if he were a ghost, driven by a desire for revenge. One day, a hard drive with explosive data falls into his hands, and he is drawn into the machinations of ruthless criminals. Finally, he is forced to come to terms with his past. Inspired by the music of Japanese punk rock band bloodthirsty butchers, Gakuryu ISHII presents an audiovisual firework – fast, relentless and loud!

Director Bio
Gakuryu (Sogo) ISHII was born in Fukuoka in 1957. His dystopian punk rock musical BURST CITY (1982) made him one of the precursors of the Japanese cyberpunk movement of the 1980s. Since then he has worked with renowned Japanese actors and international punk bands on numerous short and feature films. NIPPON CONNECTION dedicated a retrospective to his work in 2013.
