Storyline

Writer Misuzu Nakahara confesses her involvement in the 300 Million Yen Affair. In the chaotic days of the 1960s, Misuzu, a lonely high school girl from a troubled family, finds a sanctuary with her nihilistic brother Ryo and his friends, who pass day by day hanging around a shadowy café bar and indulging themselves in sex, drugs and alcohol. As the social unrest seeps in and their relationships gradually fall off, Misuzu gets drawn into a dangerous plot against the society set by one of the rebellious boys, Kishi - robbing a bank car of 300 million yen. The two accomplices set out for numerous rehearsals, and their hearts get closer secretly and quietly. On one rainy day, helped by coincidences, the heist goes successful to give a huge impact on Japan, but it only brings Misuzu a great sense of loss and sadness she had never expected.

This is a fiction about famous cash robbery to get JPY 3000 mil. We Japanese call this offender to "San-Okuen Jiken". They succeeded to get money from cash transport car in 1968. The composite picture scattered everywhere in Japan. However nobody caught this offender and run out the statute of limitations.

This story is very interesting story to show us who was a offender and how to grab money. Exciting point is that young high school girl did this alone.

I think this is a good story and movie. I love this lead actress, Ms.Aoi MIyazaki. She is very charm and cute.
