Summary
In this bleak depiction of contemporary suburban Tokyo, oppressive summer school boredom is shattered by a teenager's brutal murder of his mother. Four teenage girls make small choices to help him -- loaning a bicycle, not answering questions by the police -- as they're inevitably drawn to the mystery, drama, and alternative to real life that his act offers. Though the self-absorbed teens may be too much for some, the multiple points of view allow for a gripping if somber glimpse into modern teenage Japanese culture. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
