Synopsis: Directed by Katsuhide Motoki (It All Began When I Met You, Samurai Hustle) Ninja Drones?, a film adaptation of an original stage play, is a musical about the friendships and struggles of young men in juvenile detention.

Young men, each with dark histories and criminal records, are incarcerated in a juvenile detention centre. Factions form and the rival Red Gang and Blue Gang are constantly fighting as the Black Gang watches with amusement. One day, a newcomer arrives who doesn’t join any group and keeps a diary in solitude. Meanwhile, a new prison governor is appointed who announces he will tighten control and pound inmates into shape using violence if necessary and so turns the prison into a living hell. After reaching breaking point, the youngsters join forces and secretly develop a plan of action.
