THE FABLE
ザ・ファブル

©2019 “THE FABLE” Film Partners
Your slightly offbeat neighbor might actually be an assassin on vacation.

As his nickname implies, the Fable is an enigmatic assassin who terrorizes the underworld.
The overworked assassin gets an order from his boss.
"Live the life of a normal man for one year. Kill anyone during your vacation and I kill you." In incognito, the Fable is given the name, "Akira Sato" and his partner is "Yoko." They start their new lives as a regular brother and sister with a pet parakeet and part-time work, etc.
The assassin begins to enjoy a normal life with no body counts but troubles come looking for him. Other assassins are after him and others need his help.
The Fable must survive a life-or-death situation without killing anyone. Can he ever get his peaceful life back...?

在江湖上被称为「传说」的神秘杀手"FABLE(寓言)",因工作有点太多而得到了来自BOSS的一个特殊的命令:「一年内,隐居于普通人中,不得杀害任何人,如有违反,就杀了你」。
寓言化名为佐藤明,和拍档洋子一共开启了普通人的生活,养养鹦鹉,打打工・・・
可当他们刚刚适应了<普通>的生活,杀害寓言的组织,求助寓言的人不断的出现,事态向无法想象的方向急速展开!
在【绝对不可以杀人】的命令下,寓言是否可以解开穷途末路的危机局面,过上平凡普通的生活呢?!
