Jo is a violent hot-head low-life recruited into the yakuza after he beats up a bunch of bums. He plays two gangs against each other for cash a la the samurai from Yojimbo before we find out he's not what he seems.
Once we find out who Jo really is and why he's acting so impetuously, he learns the hard way that his best friend's death was not what it seemed either.
A ninety minute fast-Tokyo Roadrunner cartoon featuring hip blaring jazz, Guys and Dolls costumes, and go-go dancers, and a plot acceptable only by the most credulous...but it's great cornball fun nonetheless.
