TAKANO Suzume [Japan]
A handgun is in a paper bag found by a group of 6 high school girls from various backgrounds. In front of this human-killing tool, they think of people they would want to disappear in order to improve their world. With a carefully crafted plot and a dry touch, the story depicts each of the six girls who possess the gun and five bullets asking herself who she wants to die.
