The flower that blooms at night.

So dear.

The love that's crushed by the rain.

So sad.

A hand in the dark,

is pulling the strings.

For a man who now

has nowhere to go,

The breasts to quench his thirst.

Ryudo Uzaki

Keiko Sekine

Misako Watanabe

Mrs. Takeda! Mrs. Takeda!

Granny! Granny!

Once is enough.

A helicopter is here to

take you to Osaka.

Akio did something big!

Akio? He's short-tempered.

In a fight again?

Not that!

You took so long!

I had my hair set.

JAN 29, 1979



A Film by Banmei Takahashi



Your husband's here?

He went to work.

Who's there?

He took care of me.

It's you. What is it?

Today's pay day.

Your money!

What's wrong with you?

Quick! Money!

You should've given it at once!

I was 15 years and 9 months old.

When I was 16,

I didn't know if I'd live.

Must be the joke of fate.

1968 OSAKA

Be careful!

If you can feel the pain,

that means you're alive.

With the money you pay me,

you can only get a petal

by a veteran tattoo artist.

Just do it quick, rookie!

You're unusual.

Only foreigners want it

on their chests.

And they want something

Japanese like a peony.

Never mind that!

I want it there!

Let him go!

Let my Akio go!

Out of our way!

I gave birth to him!

I won't let you take him!

He did nothing bad!

He's a good boy!

He just has some bad friends!

Is it you?

Is it you?

You told him to kill somebody?

Madam, this is our job.

We'll investigate...

I won't forget what you said.

He and I have always

lived as outcasts.

That's fine. We're used to that.

But this time,

find out the truth.

If you don't, I don't

care if you're police.

I get it.

Your case became a problem

at the police station.

Thanks for your work.

You used to be a playboy!

He's your son. I understand

you want to protect him.

He's my son. I can shelter

him or help him flee.

Not just this. He should go to

the victim's home and apologize.

"Bit by the dog that they fed."

That's how he feels!

That person should go

and apologize. Not me.

Of course not!

He who manipulated Akio,

was he punished?

I'll raise Akio well and give

you a successful person.

You think it is easy?


When he's 30.

Five more days.

Emperor's birthday?

Fool! My 20th birthday!

My probation would be expired.

You're an adult now!

Leave this shabby place

and do what I like.

I'm fed up with the

probation officer's nagging!

You're seeing him today?

You go like this?

I know. Stop worrying about

others, just shut up and work.

Get up and put it

in the trash bin.

Don't want to get up.

It's warm here...

Such a good guy!

Water please.

You're now 20.

Thank you very much.

It's all because of you,

Mr. Takagi.

I'm your probation officer.

I have to back you up.

Your own effort is what counts.

No, not really...


Water please.

I must have said many

nasty things... Sorry.


- You drink a lot.

- Sorry.

I'll put it here.

You're now clean. What's the

first thing on your list?

Fetch my mother,

we'll live together.

Good boy. Your mom's

really worried about you.

Your father passed away.

When was that?

Nearly a year ago.


For the 1st anniversary,

go home and visit his grave.

No matter what he did,

the dead is dead.

I agree.


Takeda, where're you going?

I have somewhere to go.

Careful. Careful.

Akio? Why're you here?

Where's Mom?

She's still working.

What a guy!

Your wife's working.

You stay home and drink!

The police just came.

Japan's police are so efficient!

Why did you run away?
