Three men hoping to find a better life in Tokyo find their dreams of happiness turning into a waking nightmare in the final installment of maverick Japanese Director Takashi Miike's Black Society trilogy. When a scheming Chinese prostitute takes the men for all they're worth and the harsh realities of racism and poverty render them unemployable, the trio attempts to carve a niche in the local drug trade as a means to make ends meet. Stricken with sympathy for the men she had previously betrayed, the prostitute attempts to help the men -- but city life has taken its toll on them and the reluctant trio soon begins plotting a daring bank robbery that will provide them with the money necessary to escape Tokyo and start life anew in a better place.
