Vengeance Can Wait navigates Japanese sub-culture as it charts a different kind of love story. Odd roommates have the ideal domestic relationship: he spends his days planning the perfect revenge, while she awaits her perfect punishment. Dark, twisted, and touching, Hidenori and Nanase come to understand the “kinks” in their relationship – and embrace them.
