Kohji falls in love with his childhood friend Hiroko. Her father, Naoki Sando, a Yakuza and Kohji's 'adoptive' father, disowns him. On the streets, Kohji sells his body. Years pass, then there's a call. Naoki Sando's in big trouble. His colleague Tanner has stolen a serious amount of cash and fled to Canada. His Yakuza bosses want their money back. Fast. It's a way of re-establishing communication with Naoki Sando. And perhaps seeing Hiroki again. Kohji leaves for the industrial wastelands of Montreal. Searching for Tanner, a ghost on the run. And finding Viv, Tanner's ex-wife. She and Kohji share a brief, intense sexual union, then part. Kohji is alone again. Hunting.
