Synopsis of Kitamura Ryuhei's "Lovedeath"

Here's my rough and ready translation of the synopsis of Kitamura Ryuhei's "Lovedeath" on the Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival homepage:

"A man and a woman try to make it through "Chrysalis Day" together. The fate of the rest of their lives will be decided by how they choose to spend this day. Sai, a violent man who rushes headlong to stay true to his pure love, and the beautiful Shira [not sure on the spelling] who can bend any man to her will. Chasing Shira, who is fleeing with money, are a group of cool and vicious gang enforcers, a cadre of loopy assassins, an out-of-control detective, and a host of other far-out characters. No one can stop Sai and Shira's wild-eyed runaway love! A mightily crazy, awesomely cool tale of one couple."

The breathless synopsis is followed by this interesting line:

"With nothing left to destroy after his last film "Godzilla: Final Wars," Kitamura Ryuhei returns to his roots and revives his independent production style." (source: YIFFF)
