    • Synopsis
    • Yoji Yukitoh (Motoki Ochiai) , a timid delivery boy, witnesses the death of a waitress who is caught in the crossfire between rival yakuza factions. The involved yakuza are later mysteriously killed. Their killer is Yukitoh. Yukitoh, whose parents were brutally murdered when he was still a child, appears to be a slow, weak man on the surface, but his true face is that of an assassin who eliminates evil where the law can’t. At the same time, young girls were disappearing all across the city. When Yukitoh makes a delivery to a members only club, he meets a stunningly beautiful woman named Leila (Maimi Yajima). The club turns out to be a front for an organized crime where the missing girls are taken to, drugged, and sold into sex slavery, and it is protected by a powerful figure of the city who is also a patron at the club. Leila is its hired gun and also a professional assassin. However, like Yukitoh, she has lost her family as a young girl and carries that scar. Eventually, the criminal organization abducts the daughter of a dry cleaner Yukitoh befriended. When the police look the other way and the father is killed, Yukitoh explodes in fury. Leila, on the other hand, secretly makes contact with the daughter. That is when the two assassins’ paths cross and clash!
