The Trap

1996 NR

In this gripping thriller, the final segment in director Kaizo Hayashi's noirish trilogy, cantankerous private detective Maiku Hama (Masatoshi Nagase) has finally hit his groove, or so he thinks; with a great woman by his side and a client list a mile long, there's nothing to complain about. But then, in walks a cloaked mystery figure who enlists him on a most unusual quest, one that winds up threatening everything Hama's worked for.
