Income stabilization and economic stagnation have threatened the financial security
of many organized crime families. As a result, many organizations are encroaching on
rival territories. Police are concerned by the explosive tensions that is building as
Yamashire, the underworld giant, moves in on the Nishida organization’s extensive 
gambling operations. Even the smallest incident has the potential to spark an all-out
war any time.

Hard-hitting and controversial, Kinji Fukasaku is also the director of the recent highly
acclaimed film BATTLE ROYAL, and is Japan’s most successful director. With more than
60 films to his credit over a 40 year career, Fukasaku is renowned for his ability to shock,
grab and disturb the viewer. His crime films are strong statements of social criticism and
became ideal vehicles to vent his anger and frustration over hopelessness and poverty in
post-war Japan.
