Young Yakuza (2007)

Sobre o filme

20 year old Naoki is caught up in the ever increasing juvenile delinquency in Japan. His record is dismal: a failure at school, at work and in his personal life, Naoki has decided to turn to a life of petty crime. Naoki`s mother, Mrs. Watanabe, is driven to despair and shame by his lifestyle. One day she meets up Mr. Imai, an old school friend. During her conversation with him she reveals, with great sadness, that, as much as she has tried everything to make her son become a productive member of Japanese society. She asks Mr. Imai`s advice - can he think of a way out for her son? Mr. Imai suggests that she place her son, for a while, in a yakuza, Japanese styled Mafia family. He believes that the experience could anchor Naoki. She is torn between immense feelings of shame towards the community and the glimmer of hope that this last chance might just save her son. Naoki will have to choose between the light and the darkness…
