A young man returns to the island where he was held prisoner as a child in this action thriller from Japanese director Masahiro Shinoda. He was sent to the island as a boy so he could not reveal the identities of the military police who killed his family. For 20 years he has planned to seek revenge against the sadistic tormentor who tortured the island inhabitants. He meets the daughter of the torturer, and the young woman claims her father has changed his ways. The victim hunts down the old man and instead of killing him, he makes the man cut off one of his own fingers.
