[ Story ]
Goro, a gangster, decides to quit his dangerous and ill-paying profession. He goes to live with his friends, Yukiko and Yumeko, but is soon drawn back into his old life. Yumeko is ill and to pay for her treatment Goro enters Kiuchi's gang.
In line with his duties he is sent to negotiate with a rival gang, run by a man named Izumi. Relations become tense and when there is a fight -- one in which Goro takes no part -- he is bitterly berated by Kiuchi. Still, when Kiuchi is attacked, Goro saves his life and, his debt paid, leaves the gang.
In the meantime one of the Kiuchi gang is brutally killed because he fell in love with the daughter of one of the Izumi gang. Angered, Goro returns and confronts Kiuchi, but is himself injured.
Later, however, after Kiuchi has killed Izumi, Goro takes justice upon himself. He stalks and attacks Kiuchi, kills him, and although wounded, staggers away.
