Adrift in Tokyo

Debt collector Fukuhara (Tomokazu Miura) is sent to shake down 800,000 yen from hapless college student Takemura (Jô Odagiri). But Fukuhara says he'll forgive the debt if the young man simply agrees to walk with him across Tokyo. An unlikely friendship develops during the long downtown journey, filled with bizarre encounters, strange characters and thoughtful conversation in this offbeat comic gem.
