Based on a book by Taiko Hirabayashi, one of Japan's most famous female novelists, Kanto Wanderer puts a Suzukian spin on the classic yakuza movie conflict between giri (duty) and ninjo (humanity). It was produced to fill the second half of a double bill with Imamura's Shohei The Insect Woman. The film features two rebellious yakuza who opt for love. The choice means pitting themselves against their own mobs.
