SYNOPSIS


On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders are united by fierce loyalty, a penchant for petty theft and playful grifting. When the young son is arrested, secrets are exposed that upend their tenuous, below-the-radar existence and test their quietly radical belief that it is love—not blood—that defines a family.

Di pinggiran kota Tokyo, orang-orang yang dikucilkan dan dianggap disfungsional oleh masyarakat malah disatukan oleh tali kesetiaan serta kegemaran untuk mencuri maupun menipu. Ketika salah satu anak laki-laki di dalam komunitas tersebut masuk penjara, rahasia demi rahasia mulai terkuak untuk menguji kepercayaan mereka bahwa keluarga bukanlah tentang hubungan darah, melainkan rasa cinta.
