Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A contraband dealer living in Kabukicho discovers that there is danger lurking behind every corner when his untrusting exterior is slowly eroded by love in director Lee Chi-ngai's hard-boiled crime drama. An ex-gangster who now makes his living selling illegal goods and trusts no one, half Taiwanese/half Japanese outlaw Lau Kenichi (Takeshi Kaneshiro) exists in a land where no one seems to speak the same language and three rival factions struggle to be the most powerful in the city. When the go-to man for one of the top crime bosses is murdered and Kenichi is given three days to find the killer, the appearance of a mysterious femme fatale threatens to cost the resourceful underworld dealer more than just his livelihood.
