    • Synopsis
    • As one-time leader of Kanto's ruling “Jinsha” motorcycle gang at only 17 years old, Tetsu Hino rode without fear. 20 years later, he works day in and day out as a construction worker to support his family. Berated by his own rebellious son Shuhei, once-respected Tetsu is a mere shadow of his former self.
      Living a similarly unremarkable life is former Jinsha gang member Yokota. One day Yokota's daughter Makoto is brutally violated by a posse of youths. In order to settle the score, Tetsu and his former Jinsha comrades reunite for the first time since their biker gang days. Feeling oppressed in their humdrum lives as society spins out of control, Tetsu and his old crew express mutual frustration. It awakens something in Tetsu's mind. “What the hell happened to us?” he asks himself.
      “What kind of man am I if I can't even protect one of my own family?!”
      Will Tetsu be able to stand up once more for the brothers, “the family,” who gave his life in this world meaning?
      When Tetsu learns that a rival gang member from the Jinsha days named Igarashi still harbours a grudge from the past, it unleashes his long-buried violent impulses and wild spirit.
      By the time Tetsu realizes how deep he is, there's no turning back as he races into the final showdown. “I'm gonna finish this. Once and for all.”
