Young people's daily life in the early 80s. A young woman murders people in a park, randomly shooting them with a firearm. One day, she meets a housebreaker who poisons his victims and she confides to him.

Two years before Carnival of the Night, Masashi Yamamoto (Robinson's Garden, Junk Food) gives 8mm a try, with a feature film marked by an unfettered rage. With no holds barred, he paints a picture of a sleazy and deliquescent Shinjuku, in a superb and chaotic mix of murders, happenings, porn shows and experimentations. One of the more nihilistic films in this cycle.
