Siren

Abbas, an Arab immigrant, breaks into the room of Toyoshige, a Japanese old man, in the sudden wail of siren. Then Abbas storms out of the door, carrying Toyoshige piggyback. As they go down the stairs, the film reveals their day-to-day lives and shows their prejudices and misunderstandings.
