During a heated argument with her father, Kyoko defies his wishes for her to marry Aiko, and instead informs him she is having a child out of wedlock with Siochi. After refusing to leave when he orders her gone, she leaves him to simmer; the next day he is dead. With all evidence pointing to Kyoko, she is quickly found guilty and sentenced to death. Desperate to see her baby and prove her innocence, Kyoko escapes from prison with a cellmate, after narrowly escaping rape at the hands of another female prisoner. With the police hot on her trail and her emotions on full throttle, Kyoko's trust in who to rely on falters. Will she be able to find her father's killer before she is captured?

This black comedy about a prison break gone wrong was unlike anything else Shintoho made. Released just before the studio's collapse, The Horizon Glitters is a brilliant one-off that doesn't fit in the usual genre boxes, made with a freedom and an energy that verges on the anarchic. A motor-mouthed proto-punk breaks out of prison with his cellmates, in search of a large cache of diamonds. Director Michiyoshi Doi spices the journey with incidents and antics that are a mix of slapstick and surreal.
