A former mob boss' past returns to haunt him as he tries to walk the straight and narrow in director Takashi Miike's adaptation of Hiroshi Motomiya's popular manga. He may have been a wild man in his past, but these days former biker Kintaro (Katsunori Takahashi) opts to spend his days working a white-collar job for a respected construction company. Though his street smarts seem to come in handy when a powerful corporation begins utilizing corrupt politicians and yakuza thugs in a bid to take over the company, Kintaro soon realizes that he alone cannot put an end to the strong-arm tactics, and if there is any hope for the company, he must enlist the help of some old, not so subtle friends.
