Veteran television director Yukihiko Tsutsumi made this drama about one of the most tension-fraught dinners at a Chinese restaurant in recent memory. Hoshino (Toshiro Yanagiba) is a shady businessman with strong mob connection who owns said restaurant. Because a long-planned money laundering operation is about to yield some serious dividends, Hoshino is understandably in the mood for a little celebrating. Just as the first course is being served, however, he gets an uninvited visitor -- a rangey, dreadlocked hit man (Izam) -- who, instead of whacking him outright, sits down and starts to eat. Hoshino has no idea who or for what reason someone put a hit out on him, but he aims to find out.
