Angel in Killers
Tenshi wa, nido shinu
Sawada's childhood was shaped by his mother's abuse. Mentally wounded, as a teenager he suffers from violent bullying from his classmates. Surprisingly, he gets help from Kikuchi, who is the same age and grew up with an brutal father learning to compensate his hatred with violent outbursts. The two feel instinctively drawn to one another, but instead of finding a way out together they remain driven by their traumatic childhood. During a visit to Sawada's mother's apartment disaster strikes and a desperate escape begins.
