Based on a novel by Shinya Tanaka, this film is set in a quiet riverside town, where 17-year-old Tooma lives with his father and his father’s lover. Tooma witnesses his father’s sadistic behavior towards his lover and soon finds himself following in his father’s footsteps.

Really boring and seemed to lack much of a purpose.
The ending didn't feel like their had been any progression at all ad it was like they just gave up before they could conclude it.
