There is mayhem at every turn in this unevenly scripted melodrama that highlights the violent activities of truck driver Koji Nagai (Yutaka Mizutani). First the man is arrested for a murder he did not commit, but then when he is released, his subsequent behavior seems to make up for that mistake. He accidentally kills a gangster, then kills or wounds the gangster's friends who are out for vengeance, and after taking off with a runaway from an orphanage, he also stabs the boy's uncle. He continues running until he and the boy are surrounded by the police and the end is finally near.
