A crafty hitman and his cunning sidekick attempt a daring escape after carrying out a high-profile contract and incurring the wrath of a vicious gang in director Takashi Nomura's hard-boiled noir thriller. A gang looking to get rid of a rival boss hires a seasoned hitman (Jo Shishido) to get the job done right. With his trusty sniper rifle in hand and his longtime sidekick (Jerry Fujido) by his side, the assassin manages to hit his mark and make a quick getaway. Before they can board their getaway plan, however, the boss' thugs manage to snatch them up. Later, after managing a narrow escape, the desperate pair makes their way to a cheap trucker hotel just outside of Yokohama. Upon attempting to catch a boat bound for foreign shores, Shishido and his right hand man become locked into an explosive gun battle with the vicious gangsters who have vowed to send their boss' killer straight to hell.
