Kazuya Takino leads a quiet life running a supermarket in the Tokyo suburbs. But when an extortionist tries to force him out of business, he finds himself drawn into the yakuza underworld - a world he once called home and thought he had left behind. Pursuing him is detective Takagi, an aficionado of French cigarettes and modernist poetry, the most decorated inspector on the Tokyo police force.

When Nakagi welcomes an escaped felon into the emotionally fraught fold, and begins to teach him to paint as well, Winter Sleep awakens to a literally incendiary climax
