Directed by Takeshi Kitano (VIOLENT COP, HANA BI) in the wake of a motorcycle accident that left one side of his body paralyzed, KIDS RETURN is about two high-school drop outs who try to find direction in their lives.

Masuru (Ken Kaneko) and Shinji (Masanobu Ando) are childhood friends, who team up in the schoolyard to extort money from others. As they progress to adulthood, Masuru becomes a member of the local yakuza gang, while Shinji shows talent as a boxer. Pursuing separate paths in life, the two friends gradually grow apart, but how will they get by without each other?
