Summary
About Japanese post-war corruption and hierarchical abuse in the boardrooms of postwar corporate Japan echoes Shakespeare's Hamlet. The illegitimate son of a low-level functionary pursues the perpetrators of a high-level corporate scandal. Believing that they drove his father to suicide--to protect their schemes--the son seeks vengeance for his father. To gain access to the halls of power, he marries the head of corporation's daughter
