Legendary director Kinji Fukasaku (Battle Royale, The Black Lizard) takes the helm for this stylish and violent take on the life of a lower echelon yakuza thug striving to survive in a Tokyo where the rules are constantly changing. Thuggish Isamu Okita (Bunta Sugawara) has a bad reputation for his short temper and bad habit of flying off the handle. When he returns to the streets after a harrowing stint in jail, the ever-changing climate finds him struggling to survive. When adaptation to the new way of gang life proves futile for ex-con Isamu, the misfit forms his own gang with the intention of getting revenge on those who wronged him in the past.
