In this highly political Japanese film, a family's disintegration is shown as an analogy for the Japanese descent into heartless materialism. Though his family members have resigned themselves to their downward spiral both socially and economically, the son of the household has not. He is ambitious to attain something and to strike out on his own. What happens instead is that he grows increasingly disillusioned about his life and his world.
