A poor boy becomes friends with a rich girl. He has a pigeon which he sells, but since it is a homing pigeon, he can actually sell it over and over again. The bird becomes a symbol for the girl as well. This directorial debut from Oshima Nagisa immediately established him as the leader of the Japanese new cimema in the sixties. The unsentimental and harsh realistic style was vastly different from the melodramatic traditional style of Shochiku Company, the studio who financed the film at the time. Oshima suggested that there is no compromise between the rich and the poor and class distinctions are closely linked to criminal tendencies.
