Drawing inspiration from the Russian classic Crime and Punishment and placing the behemoth of a book in a modern metropolis, Ochiai Naoyuki retells Dostoevsky's drama from the point of view of a struggling Japanese writer. In the 2006 remake "Crime and Punishment - A Falsified Romance", Ochiai's lead is an incredibly talented young man with award-winning abilities.


Tachi was recently placed as the Best New Writer in a major literary competition - but the stress of living up to his family's goals of him becoming a powerful man has broken him on the cusp of greatness. He dropped out of college. After moving to Tokyo, he struggles with his identity and the duality of life in this surreal megalopolis. Despite being recognized for his tremendous potential, success does not come quite as easily. Life is nothing but a battle with his past and his moral fiber. He hasn't been to work in four months, and his dreams are in complete disarray; filled with abuse, taunting, and the strong smell of blood. Tachi is alone and without direction in life; a person best described as a hikikomori...But that is only the beginning of his misfortunes.
