    From Yohei Fukuda, the controversial director of the crowd-pleasing action-horror flick 'Chanbara Beauty', comes Tokyo Gore School, in which Fukuda uses a violent teen action-drama to address the provocative subjects of bullying, teen violence, underground websites and data protection.

    For high schooler Fujiwara, everything in life seems to be going according to plan. He's good-looking, popular, doing well in his studies and, most importantly, is a good fighter and is therefore able to avoid the attentions of any bullies looking for trouble.

    His idyll suddenly ends, however, when he is unexpectedly attacked by a group of fellow students, seemingly without any provocation. His investigation into the attack leads him to the discovery of a series of underground websites linking to known social networking sites and to a mysterious and very violent game that is being spread through the students' mobile phone networks.

    Forced against his will to join in the game in order to prevent his deepest and darkest personal secret from being revealed to the entire school, Fujiwara becomes a key part of a puzzle that is becoming deadlier by the hour. Soon, he is involved in a fight for his life for reasons still unknown to him. But the terrifying truth is about to be revealed…
