The Sanno crime family has grown into a huge organization, expanding its power into politics and legitimate big business.
TAKESHI KITANO – OUTRAGE BEYOND
Tomokazu Miura, Ryo Kase, Fumiyo Kohinata, Toshiyuki Nishida
The Sanno’s upper ranks are now dominated by young executives, and the old-guard members are penting up resentment while being pushed to the sidelines. This vulnerable spot in the Sanno hierachy is exactly what anti-gang detective Kataoka has been looking for, as the police force prepares a full-scale crackdown. With secret plots and dirty tricks, the ambitious Kataoka instigates confl ict between the Sanno and their long-time ally, the Hanabishi, in the hopes that they ultimately destroy each other. But Kataoka’s trump card is the arranged release from prison of Otomo, the rumoreddead boss of a family once crushed by the Sanno. Otomo’s surprise return adds to the deception and betrayal among the families as everyone watches out for the other’s next move. It’s impossible to guess who will come out on top in this fi erce power game. It’s not over until it’s over.
