- Mikami is rough and temperamental, but he is also sincere and kind and cannot look away from those in need. He has spent most of his life in prison as a convicted murderer. A young man working for TV approaches Mikami who desperately tries to start life anew. Miwa Nishikawa’s film adaptation of Ryuzo Saki’s “Mibuncho (Prison Papers)” is a controversial piece portraying endearing and pathetic qualities of human nature and lights and shadows of society.
