Movie description:
Episodes from the lives of a group of Tokyo slum-dwellers: Rokkuchan, a retarded boy who brings meaning and routine to his life by driving an imaginary streetcar; children who support their parents by scrounging or by tedious and ill-paying endeavours; schemers who plot or dream of escaping the shackles of poverty.

By turns tragic and transcendent, Akira Kurosawa’s film follows the daily lives of a group of people barely scraping by in a slum on the outskirts of Tokyo. Yet as desperate as their circumstances are, each of them – the homeless father and son envisioning their dream house; the young woman abused by her uncle; the boy who imagines himself a trolley conductor – finds reasons to carry on. The unforgettable »Dodes’ka-den« was made at a tumultuous moment in Ku-rosawa’s life. And all of his hopes, fears, and artistic passion are on fervent display in this, his gloriously shot first colour film.
