[ Story ]

The cabaret "Doto" located in Tsushima Island between Japan and Korea is a veritable base for smugglers of opium. It is operated by Yuri, who is the mistress of the chief smuggler named Chin-Un-Ryu, and there are many waitresses who are forced to serve the demands of the smugglers. One day a man named Nobuhiko Ogami appears at the "Doto" who is from the Hong Kong's headquarters of the smugglers and well-known for his skill in shooting. Yuri had been his sweetheart but she left him mysteriously, and Nobuhiko came to the island to seek out and revenge himself on the man who had taken her from him. He disturbs Chin and his group's business and finally there are exchanges of shots between the smugglers and police who have been informed by Nobuhiko. The women are freed, but at the last moment when Chin fires at Nobuhiko from behind the rock, Yuri, who loved him most, throws herself in the path of the bullet.
