It's 1963 and the Kurashima City yakuza underworld has narrowed to 2 warring clasns. The kawade gang uses political influence to legitimatize their rackets, while the Ohara group shares an uneasy alliance with corrupt local cops. But when Boss Ohara initiates a bold waterfront land-grab, the precarious balance between gangsters, police, and politicians tips towards a bloodbath. Kuno's own hands are not spotless. Torn between his childhood connections with a yakuza kingpin, mounting pressure from reformer superiors, and the trigger happy gun-lust that led him to the police force in the first place, Kugno occupies the eye of the film's full-force hurricane of ferocious action. Kinji Fukasaku directs.
