The movie “Shylock’s Children,” a live-action adaptation of Jun Ikeido’s novel, is scheduled to be released on February 17, 2023 (Friday).

The original novel “Shylock’s Children” is a popular work by Jun Ikeido, who has produced numerous bestsellers such as “Hanzawa Naoki,” “Rikuoh,” and “Akira to Akira.” It revolves around a cash loss incident at a bank and depicts the intertwined lives of its employees, creating a mosaic drama. While it has also garnered attention for its drama adaptation in the fall of 2022, the movie version will take a completely original approach, diverging from both the novel and the drama’s developments. <The Children of Shylock movie synopsis> The cash loss incident occurred at Tokyo Daiichi Bank’s Nagahara Branch. Nishiki, a customer representative, along with her colleagues Airi and Tabata from the same branch, embark on a quest to uncover the truth behind the incident. Although the branch may seem peaceful at first glance, it houses a group of eccentric bank employees. There’s Kujou, the branch manager who fell off the career ladder, Fukagawa, the vice manager known for his extreme bullying, Takino, the ace tainted by past dealings with clients, and Kuroda, the disliked inspector from the head office who comes to investigate. Eventually, Nishiki reaches a single truth – it was only the beginning of an enormous scandal rampant in the megabank.
