“Kimata Choji and Sagawa Yutaka, a couple of hapless bank robbers, who make mistake after mistake in their bid to redistribute some wealth in their favor. One of the worst blunders ends up causing their precious get-away car to get towed right in the middle of the big heist! Dressed head to toe in Santa Claus out-fits, this not-so-dynamic duo decides to hide its cash “earnings” in a train station locker, only to discover that neither of them have the correct change to operate the locker itself! Along the way, the two thieves decide to steal from a near-by street musician named Sawamura Koichi, but to their complete surprise, he chases after them! Even worse, Hoshino Yusuke and Kiba Masami, two gung-ho police officers, decide to join the chase, along with Hiramatsu Masaru, a concerned citizen who becomes an interested party himself! Considering all this manic excitement, just how will it all end for these two Christmas-themed robbers? “
