[ Story ]

Yoshiko, a beautiful but impulsive young girl, gets mixed up with a gangster who takes nude pictures of her and then threatens to blackmail her unless she helps him. He makes her sleep with pop-singer Teruo Shima, takes pictures of them in the act, and then threatens to blackmail the young man unless he parts with a considerable amount of money.
Alarmed, the singer's manager contacts a lawyer named Tokuda, not knowing that this particular man is even worse than the gangster.
Tokuda's advice to Yoshiko is simple. She is to kill the blackmailing gangster while he is drunk. Then he will take her to the police, defend her, and get her acquitted. Taking his advice, Yoshiko does this and he, true to his word, gets her off.
He has done all of this in order to extract the sum of five million yen from the pop-singer's manager. Convinced that the lawyer has done a good job, the manager hands over the money and the deal seems closed.
Except that Yoshiko, who has now caught on to everything, confronts the lawyer with his own evidence, demands all the money, and gets it.
