This Japanese melodrama chronicles the exploits of the former president of a fictionalized Southeast Asian country after he is thrown out of office. The ex-leader seeks political asylum in Japan and finds himself welcomed by the N-Bussan corporation. This was the company that supplied his regime with weapons. Unbeknownst to the deposed leader, N-Bussan has recently cut a deal with the new regime. If they kill him, they can resume their arms sales to the country. The company hires a hitman to do the job. Fortunately, the police know about the scheme and put their best detective and marksman on the case. The marksman kills the assassin's American girlfriend. The hitman hits back and kills the detective's assistant. The two men meet for their final confrontation on an isolated beach.
