Several months before the case in the movie “MW” happens, a young man who has become jobless and homeless under the recession (starred by Takeru Sato) meets Michio Yuki, an evil man without any morality (starred by Hiroshi Tamaki). To save a foster home he was raised in, the young man commits crimes without knowing horrible traps are waiting for him. Continual betrayals and treacheries bring the story to a shocking ending which nobody can predict.
Coming to himself, Takashi Morioka (starred by Takeru Sato) finds himself lying on the floor of a dark room, with his arms behind his back. He tastes blood in his mouth. Provably he has a cut on the inside of his mouth. He finds two men in front of him, one in a blue straitjacket, and another in a red straitjacket, and Michio Yuki smiling weirdly, asking him, “You know what the ultimate choice is?”
What’s happened? And what is going to happen? A shocking ending which nobody can predict is waiting after the continual betrayals. What is the secret of Takashi’s birth? What is Yuki’s true purpose? And what is “MW”? Is there any involvement of the government?
The interview to Mr. Sato and Mr. Tamaki, and lot more information and news are now available on the official site. Don’t miss them!
