Storyline

Suffering from population decline, the small seaside town of Uobuka decides to welcome 6 strangers into the community. A malevolent fishing boat operator (Kazuki Kitamura), a sexy caregiver, a frightening launderer, a timid barber, a methodical cleaning woman (Mikako Ichikawa), and a simple-minded deliveryman (Ryuhei Matsuda) are all brought together by this mysterious government-sponsored program. Even Tsukisue, the young city official put in charge of the program, has no idea why they've been brought to town. But when the truth comes out about the six strangers' mysterious past and a body is discovered in the harbor, Tsukisue begins to suspect the motley crew of foul play. Part black comedy, part murder mystery thriller the latest from director Daihachi Yoshida perfectly blends humor and suspense. Written by Anna Page, Hawaii International Film Festival

The Chick Is Thin And Pretty
8 December 2019 | by dfuznmnmSee all my reviews

And into music and not any music, but rock music so is cool, but as usual with women she gets moist for the bad boy for the criminal and there is no happy ending for anyone. She goes for the criminal and he is bad to her which as a woman is what she wants and now can whine and cry that she has been wronged and be the center of attention. With that said, she is thin so this is not a gross out American trashy tattooed film.
