Lives upended by a girl’s sudden accidental death

A short-tempered fisherman lives with his junior high school daughter. When a grocery store manager catches the girl shoplifting, she flees the store and is fatally hit by a car. The outraged father terrorises the manager and school. The store owner is sure the girl was shoplifting but continues to apologise. Eventually everyone is driven to the edge, including the store owner, the driver of the car and the father who didn’t pay enough attention to his daughter. 

Intolerance captivates viewers with shocking plot developments and intricate portrayals of the behaviour and psychology of people caught in extreme situations. This unique drama deals with sublime themes that question absolution and spiritual restitution. Director and screenplay writer Keisuke Yoshida has delivered numerous masterpieces in recent years and won the script prize at a prestigious film festival. The performances are outstanding, with popular stage actor Arata Furuta capturing the father’s frightfulness and leading young actor Tori Matsuzaka portraying the void felt by the store manager.
