"A brutal tale of two warring underworld factions determined to gain ultimate power over Kurashima City. The year is 1963, and the delicate balance of power in Kurashima City is shakily maintained between two warring factions. The political influence of the Kawade gang helps to legitimize the vicious group's lucrative rackets scheme, and the uneasy alliance shared between their rivals the Ohara gang and the corrupt local police force ensures that neither gang gets too much power. When the lure of some valuable waterfront property becomes too much for the Ohara boss to resist, however, the volatile standoff receives just the catalyst needed to spark a vicious bloodbath between the gangsters, cops, and politicians all looking to come out on top."--Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
