In what looks like a highschool, young adults fight, crap in public parks, scream, jump into sewer waste waters, and chase each other for no apparent reason.

After I am Sono Sion!, that mixed autobiographical elements and artistic performances, Sono Sion goes further and signs his first feature film, filled with the same rage and fury that runs through his entire career. The film was shown in film festivals rewarding the author with a grant that allowed him to make Bicycle Sighs. A Man's Flower Road is a seminal uppercut, an essential film that echoes Sion's later Why don't you play in hell?.
