Postman Blues

Postman Blues Sawaki is a postman, living a quiet predictable life. One day, whilst making his usual postal rounds, he meets an old friend Noguchi. Noguchi has become a drug dealer. Ever the opportunist, he sneaks a package of drugs into Sawaki's postal bag.

In 'yakuza'( Japanese gangster tradition) he has earlier severed his finger which also falls into the bag by accident. That evening Sawaki opens the letters that he was supposed to deliver. One of the letters is about a girl named Sayoko who is dying of cancer. He rushes to her bedside, where he is befriended by Joe, a professional hitman.

By the time the overeager vice-squad, who witnessed his encounter with Noguchi, is on his trail, his contact Joe rouses their suspicion even further and they start to suspect that the dull postman is actually a major hitman and drug dealer!
