Synopsis by Cammila Collar

Based on the popular manga, Eiga: Kurosagi stars Tomohisa Yamashita as Kurosaki, a con artist who only prays on other swindlers, playing criminals at their own game. As a young boy, Kurosagi's family was destroyed at the merciless hands of swindlers, and now he's made it his life's mission to act as a sort of Robin Hood of con artists, tricking and robbing those who've already wronged others, then returning the money to its rightful owner. He's among the most successful players at his deadly game, but his lifelong mission of revenge is disrupted when he meets Yoshikawa Tsurara, a beautiful young law student who can't accept Kurosagi's disregard for the laws of society. Could this be the beginning of a new life for Kurosagi, or is it too late for him to love anything but the sweet smell of vengeance?
