The movie

Akira has left his life as an assassin behind and is now working for a design company. But when a hitman targets one of his colleagues, his cover is blown. The sensational sequel to The Fable, winner of the NIFFF 2019!

Told by his boss to go off the grid for a year, legendary assassin The Fable is now living a quiet life in Osaka with his “sister” Yoko. Things get less peaceful with the arrival of Utsubo, an evil man who hides behind the pretence of a child protection association to carry out crimes such as embezzlement and murder. Based on the manga by Katshuhisa Minami, this sequel to The Fable (winner of the Audience award at the NIFFF 2019 for best Asian film) combines comedy and breath-taking action scenes to create an exhilarating experience.
