Love And Other Cults

Synopsis: Born in a regional city, a young girl named Ai (Sairi Ito) is sent to a cult commune by her religious maniac mother and lives there for seven long years. After the cult is exposed by the police, Ai starts a new, normal life going to a regular middle school, but can't find a place to fit in normal society. Ai drops out to continue finding her path in life, first living with a rock-bottom delinquent family, then moving on to be part of a middle-class family, all along trying to find her place in this world. The only person who understands Ai is Ryota (Kenta Suga), another drop-out and cast-off from society. Ryota finds his path in a shady world of delinquents while Ai ends up working in the sex industry. Two teens' purity gets swallowed up by the urban jungle of a big regional city. A black comedy depicting lives of modern youth and their struggles in a place where there is no way out.

Call me for sex, Yoko.

Hey...

Just do it.

It might be a scam.

- Come on!

- Alright!

I got through.

Talk!

Hello, I saw the toilet message.

Yes. Yes.

Yes, I'm in the toilet.

Yes.

Okay.

- Well then?

- What?

Who was it?

A woman.

- Really?

- Yeah.

And?

She said to wait outside.

Do you think she'll come?

If she does, what'll we do?

The order?

I'll go first as I called.

I don't think she's coming.

Keep your opinion to yourself.

You can't deny the probability,

it's like a lottery.

Comparing a lottery and a slut?

What's the difference?

Hey.

Did you guys make the call?

Yes, we did.

This is Yoko, the legendary slut.

Cute.

How old?

Seventeen.

All virgins?

Yes, we are!

So, who's up for it?

- I am!

- Me first!

We all want to do it,

would it be possible?

Ta-dah.

Please tell me what we have to do?

That is up to Kenta.

Kenta?

Yo, you kids!

Are you from... Minami High?

Answer!

Yes, Minami High.

Be ambitious, boys.

Get ready for push-ups!

One!

- 500 dollars each, yeah?

- What? But...

Two!

You called a sex service, right?

- We didn't call such place.

- Sex service Yoko.

You called it.

Who told you to stop?

The slut dances, the boys

do push-ups, three!

Bring the money tomorrow,

ask your parents.

Answer!

- Yes.

- Yes.

Or I'll come get ya.

Guys...

Help me.

Her name is Ai Shima.

Why I fell in love with her?

I don't know.

Emotion without reason

exists in this world.

This is my love story...

10 years ago

Do you know why babies cry

10 years ago

when they are born'?

Because they are babies?

- No.

- Why then?

They cry because they are

sad to be born.

How surreal.

Such is life, huh?

I'm going home, bye.

Bye-bye.

This is young Ai.

She was an ordinary girl

who dreamt of a happy life.

And this is Ai's mother.

A religious maniac.

This is the fourth religion

she joined in her life.

Tatsuo!

Dance with me, reach

beyond the sky, into space.

Come on, stand up.

I fell over and hurt myself,

help me, Mommy!

How pathetic.

You want my attention, huh?

Is this the result of

late child-bearing?

Damn it! My channeling with Sirius

is disturbed because of you!

I wish you'd never been born!

As the result of disturbing

her mother's prayers,

Ai was taken away to the

religious cult's commune.

Seven years has passed,

Ai has grown up in the commune

with the other members.

Here, Ai was called Ananda.

Ananda means bliss and joy.

He is the leader of the cult.

The members call him Lavi.

Look at this.

Praised Ai as

"a gifted child blessed by god."

It's a special voice.

Special direct from God.

I love you so much, Lavi.

Ananda.

May I touch you?

Of course, I'm all yours.

Ai's life here was

filled with happiness.

Occasionally Lavi took Ai

hunting with him.

The woods are vast and full of life,

Ai felt her soul was

cleansed there.

Lavi repeatedly told Ai

"Do not fear solitude. Transcend."

Ananda.

Take a look.

Ananda!

What's wrong?

It's Lavi...

The police...

It looks like the members

are being arrested.

- A word please?

- Out!

Just one word?

- Where's Lavi?

- Inside.

Alan Pereira, known here as Lavi,

the leader of the cult, is being arrested.

Is she related?

She looks underage.

Lavi! Lavi!

Lavi!

She looks to be in her early teens.

The suspect is being taken away.

Ai's peaceful life in the commune

came to end like

a one-night dream.

I'm back.

Can you feel the warmth?
