Masaharu Take, 2018 (97m)
On a night-time walk along a Tokyo riverbank, university student Toru stumbles across a dead body, beside which lies a gun. From the moment he impulsively decides to take the gun, Toru’s world starts to change. At first, just knowing that he has the gun in his possession gives him a newfound confidence, both in his studies and personal relationships. But after an encounter with a local policeman, Toru finds that he can’t stop thinking about the gun—and the four bullets loaded in its chamber. Before long he is consumed with only one thought: that just possessing the gun is no longer enough—he must fire it.
