A teen movie with a twist. Not afraid to show life in Japan as it really is, film maker Ryosuke Hashiguchi weaves a story of two young hustlers trying to make something of their drab lives.

Tatsuro is a sullen teenager who would rather spend his time turning tricks than going to school. Working out of a hustler bar he remains an aloof professional, never shying away from even the kinkiest of requests. His best friend, Shin, while not as good at turning tricks likes to hang around Tatsuro to pick up pointers.

The story climaxes when Shin admits his true love to Tatsuro, Tatsuro to face the reality of his life and a future he has never planned for.

This never before available DVD is Ryosuke Hashiguchi's first feature film. In it he displays the style and talent that would become his trademark in his other films, Like Grains of Sand and the very popular Hush.

Lest you purchase something you already own, buyers should be aware that this DVD was previously issued under the title "Touch of Fever." That's the way the title appears on screen.
