Overview

Yoichi Sai directs Takeshi "Beat" Kitano in this adaptation of the popular Yang Seok-il novel concerning a violent, ruthless family patriarch whose obsession for money destroys all that surrounds him. In 1923, Kim Shun-pei left his home on a remote island south of Korea in order to seek out his fortune in Osaka, Japan. Upon arriving in Japan, Shun-pei faced relentless discrimination while forced to work hard labor under excruciating conditions. Despite the fact that the odds were stacked against him, however, Shun-pei eventually opened a Kamaboko (steamed fish cake) factory using nothing more than his remarkable personal strength and staunch determination. Shun-pei was a cunning and ruthless businessman, and his incredible tyranny extended to his personal life as well. Yet while Shun-pei's obsession with money was the very reason he eventually found success, it would also be his ultimate downfall. Later, as money and the constant quest for wealth overtook every aspect of his life, Shun-pei transforms himself into a vicious loan shark.
