Japanese pop singer Hachiro Kasuga co-stars in this film version of her hit record of the same title. Hideaki Nitani plays the young aspiring gangster who is sent to jail for a murder he did not commit. He then gets out and goes after the Yakuza kingpin who framed him. Kasuga appears as a customs agent who investigates the case, getting more than she bargained for in the process. This was another in a string of forgettable early efforts by future cult director Seijun Suzuki (Kanto Mushuki), here using his real name, Seitaro Suzuki.
