[ Story ]

This is the second in the BUNGO Japanese Literature Cinema (BUNGO Nihon Bungaku Shinema) series of films depicting Japan's short novels. The original work is a masterpiece by Kajii Motojiro that is always included in Japanese language texts. Sato Ryuta frequently plays hot-blooded characters, but here he shows us a new side, as he plays a protagonist who hides dark urges in his heart. Kajii (Sato), a young man, has lung disease, and he wanders aimlessly around town, terrified by uncertainty. He imagines that a lemon he buys at a fruit store he passes is a bomb, and fantasizes about everything getting blown up.
