Director Sion Sono has had some good fortune since becoming a hit late last year with his most recent live-action hip-hopera manga hit, Tokyo Tribe. He’s since gone on to direct his latest mature adult gangster adaptation, Shinjuku Swan『新宿スワン』which is currently gearing up for a theatrical release in Japan this May courtesy of Sony, and we now have a teaser that lends an eye to what we can expect, which no doubt includes some heartfelt drama and plenty of beatings and screaming to go around.
Set in Kabukicho, which is an entertainment and red-light district in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan. Shiratori Tatsuhiko doesn’t have money or a job. One day, he meets a scout named Mako who recruits girls on the streets to work in the adult entertainment business. Mako likes Tatsuhiko and introduces Tatsuhiko to the world where he works. Tatsuhiko soon works as a scout too.
