The story of Twittering Birds Never Fly: The Clouds Gather is described as:
Clouds Gather, the trilogy’s first installment, introduces two steely members of the Yakuza, each with secrets in their past, who occupy trusted and feared positions in the Japanese underworld. Recent parolee, Doumeki, is assigned to guard Yashiro, a mid-level enforcer who deals out daily doses of coercion, retribution and other criminal acts with brutal efficiency. But behind closed doors, their relationship quickly becomes psychologically and physically complicated. Theirs is a story entanglement, tension, power and control. Visually stunning and highly visceral, Twittering Birds Never Fly – Clouds Gather is a gritty take on classic noir mixed with stark eroticism. And as much as it leaves its characters forever changed, so too will audiences find themselves transfixed by Twittering Birds Never Fly.
