Rescued from the lockers in which they were left to die as infants and raised to freely follow their ambitions, Kiku and Hashi begin parallel quests of vengeance against the mothers that abandoned them and the society that let it happen.

Blackwell North Amer
Abandoned at birth in train station lockers, two troubled boys are raised in an orphanage and by foster parents on a semi-deserted island before setting off for the city to find and destroy the women who first rejected them. Twisted together like a strand of DNA coded for ultimate havoc, both are drawn to an area of freaks and hustlers called Toxitown in the heart of Tokyo. One becomes a bisexual rock singer, star of this exotic demimonde, while the other, a pole vaulter, seeks out revenge in the company of his girlfriend, Anemone, a model who has converted her condominium into a tropical swamp to keep her pet crocodile in.
Together and apart, their journey from a hot metal box to a stunning, savage climax takes us on a brutal funhouse ride through the eerie landscape of late-twentieth-century Japan.
