A Korean man is sentenced to death in Japan but survives his execution, sending the authorities into a panic about what to do next. At once disturbing and oddly amusing, Oshima's constantly surprising film is a subversive and surreal indictment of both capital punishment and the treatment of Korean immigrants in his country.

This film poses the question, ‘What happens when a condemned man survives his execution?' The authorities enter into turmoil and conflict over the moral and philosophical implications.
