YAMAGAMI Tatsuhiko / IGARASHI Mikio

[Japan]

A rundown harbor town that has seen better days, Uobuka is the guinea pig for a top-secret government plan to move ex-convicts who have completed their jail sentences for vicious crimes into regional cities, unbeknownst to their new neighbors. Only three people in Uobuka know what is going on. Rich in horror, suspense, comedy and action, this is an ambitious work that explores the underbelly of human nature.
