YesAsia Editorial Description

Directed by Maeda Kazuo, The Broken Commandment is based on Toson Shimazaki's seminal 1906 novel Hakai about a man who struggles with his burakumin background. The term burakumin refers to descendants of the untouchable caste, a social group that long suffered from stigma and discrimination in Japan. The Broken Commandment was previously adapted to film by Ichikawa Kon in 1962.

Segawa Ushimatsu (Mamiya Shotaro) leaves his hometown to work as an elementary school teacher. As commanded by his late father, he keeps his burakumin background a secret. However, Segawa is troubled about hiding his origins, and disturbed by the reality of discrimination in society. He falls madly in love with Shiho (Ishii Anna), a woman at his boardinghouse who comes from a samurai family. At school, suspicions about Segawa's background begins to grow, and his position becomes precarious.
