Mr.Taxi : Happy Rising


2016/JAPANESE(ENGLISH subtitle)/World Premier/60min

Taneno is an elite police offier. One day he finds his wife Mitsuko indulging in musturbation, and his skewed sense of extreme justice propels him to slash her in wrath with a bitter squash to death.

Having served jail term, he is released from prison and takes a taxi, not knowing it is an unlawful one which provides sexual service in the backseat! There sits Omitsu, a girl who is exactly look like his deceased wife. After Taneno gets on the taxi, however, Omitsu disappears and he is forced into male prostitute work to take the consequences. Meanwhile at the police, goofy police officer Onari and young and hopeful Asadachi have moved to launch the probe.
