A new film from Japanese cult classic director, the indefatigable experimentalist Takashi Miike, is an explosive mix of crime thriller, romantic melodrama, and black comedy.

The young and terminally ill boxer Leo becomes the accidental savior of a call girl, Monica, who found her way into the grasp of the Yakuza. Having not even managed to fall in love at first sight, they end up in a whirlpool of Tokyo’s criminal nightlife. The young people are pursued by corrupt police, drug dealers, and killers sent by the Chinese Triads. Will they live until sunrise and preserve their young love?
