A sleepy seaside town is stirred by the arrival of six mysterious strangers who acclimate to local life in distinct roles: a malevolent boatman, a sexy caregiver, a frightening launderer, a timid barber, a methodical cleaning woman, and a simple-minded deliveryman. Oblivious to their origins, city official Tsukisue supports their assimilation—until the discovery of a dead body forces him to unravel their secrets. NYAFF alumni Daihachi Yoshida (The Kirishima Thing, Pale Moon) combines his patented quirkiness with a crucial message about forgiveness and redemption in this black comic manga adaptation, which features an all-star ensemble cast.
