After the collapse of their relationship, Kiwako abducts the 6-month old child of a man she was having an affair with. Raising the child as her own, it is four years before the authorities catch up with her and the young child.
A resounding conclusion to the TV series. The movie largely kept to the same style, albeit toned down a bit.
The first 1hr 28 min is as far as I can tell, a re-editing of the show with maybe some new scenes? And in chronological order. Most of the important pieces and episodes is there except for some side stories.
Then the last bits goes on to the conclusion or the face-off between father and son. And the enigma of the girl from Venus.
I like it. But should you want the completeness of the story you need to see the TV series for the nuances. And the TV series has more .. 'style' in turns of editing. Wish the producers can keep coming up with these rather daring different shows.
