Synopsis:
1968. Gangland strife in Northern Kyushu follows family troubles within the Owada gang when boss Owada (Ko Nishimura) takes in wanderer and assassin Shuji Kuroda (Bunta Sugawara) after he does time for the assassination of a rival boss. Rejecting his drug-addicted son-in-law Kusunoki (Tsutomu Yamazaki), much to the anguish of his conflicted daughter Misako (Meiko Kaji, Female Prisoner Scorpion), Owada sets up his own demise when rogue elements within his gang notice the unrest. Kuroda, promised a payment for his jail time, also targets the new Owada boss with a ruthless vengeance, and recklessly lays waste to the local crime elements in order to achieve his financial rewards.
Director Kinji Fukasaku takes his popular series in a new, original direction with this standalone film, and introduces a fresh style and method of storytelling to the yakuza genre, including a pair of female characters who are just as calculating and ruthless as their male counterparts.
