Sion Sono (SUICIDE CLUB, COLD FISH), adapts Minoru Furuya's popular manga to tell the confrontational tale of a troubled adolescent boy whose dreams of an ordinary life are slowly eroded in the aftermath of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. Fifteen-year-old Sumida (Shota Sometani) and his mother run a small boat-rental business on the outskirts of the city. They don't get many customers, but the presence of some local homeless people on their property ensures that there's rarely a dull moment around the shop. Meanwhile, at school, Sumida's classmate Keiko (Fumi Nikaido) makes no secret of her massive crush on him. When Sumida's mother decides to abandon both the business and her son, Keiko and the other locals team up in an attempt to spruce up the boat house, and lure in some new clientele. But when Sumida's drunken, physically abusive father repeatedly shows up to berate the beleaguered teen, and a vicious crime boss appears seeking to collect on a lingering debt, the volatile situation quickly begins to boil over.
