PASSENGER (THE)

Status: Completed

Director(s): Fran§ois Rotger

Long synopsis : As a boy Kohji is taken under the wing of Naoki Sando, a Yakuza operative. When he falls in love with his ‘adoptive’ father’s beautiful daughter Hiroko, Naoki Sando disowns him. On the streets, Kohji sells his body and waits. Years pass, then there’s a call. Naoki Sando’s in big trouble. His old colleague Tanner has stolen a serious amount of cash and fled to Canada. Naoki’s Yakuza bosses want their money back. Fast. It’s a way of re-establishing communication with Naoki Sando. And perhaps a way of seeing Hiroki again. Kohji leaves for the industrial wastelands of Montreal. Searching for Tanner. And finding his ex-wife Viv – in her 40s, succesful, stunningly beautiful. She and Kohji share a brief, intensely animal sexual union, then part. Kohji is alone again. Hunting. Back in Japan, time is running out. The pressure on Naoki Sando is building. Sick, he is taken to hospital, leaving Hiroko alone, open to the lethal charms of Akira, Yakuza hitman, as deadly as he is attractive. And then there’s Tanner, a ghost on the run with his hysterical young lover Vera. Terrified. Out of control. Doomed. Kohji finds Tanner. And kills him. The circle closes. A zero. Tanner was innocent. And only Naoki Sando is left. A man of shadows and treachery, full of dark secrets. Left with nothing but an empty room stained with his daughter’s blood.
