[ Story ]

Tadashi, a wanted killer, learns that the youth whom he has loved like a brother is dead. He committed suicide under very strange circumstances.
Investigating, he discovers that a group of women seduced the young man - after which he killed himself.
Swearing revenge, the killer sets out to avenge his young friend who had meant a lot to him. One by one he gives himself to the women and then kills them. Yet, in the midst of this, he finds himself drawn toward a young girl, a waitress, who comes from a poor family and has had a most unhappy childhood. He comes to love her but, by the time the fourth woman is found murdered, the police have discovered who the killer is.
With one woman left to kill, Tadashi remembers his dead friend, leaves the waitress, and makes the final woman confess what she had done. In the morning he kills her and then - as the police watch - jumps from the same roof-top from which his friend jumped to his death.
