[ Story ]
Komuro, a ship's doctor, says goodbye to the sea as he has now enough money to start a small hospital of his own. On his way to Tokyo, in Izu a local doctor's body is found riddled with shots and, as Komuro is carrying his shotgun, the dead man's daughter Keiko, and son Masao, are convinced he killed their father.
After becoming involved in another murder case when the husband of Yuko, through love of whom Komuro had gone to sea is killed, he returns to Tokyo with Masao, now convinced that he had nothing to do with the death of his father. In Tokyo he is surprised to meet Teno, whom he supposed dead, but who reveals that he killed a man in self-defence and is now being sought by an enemy.
Teno, followed by Komuro, goes to Niigata where before he is killed is able to tell the doctor that the construction site he'd been working on in Izu is in danger.
When Komuro arrives a party is celebrating the completion of a big tunnel, but suddenly there is a loud explosion as it blows up, and he is just in time to prevent another explosion near those assembled for the ceremony.
But, as he shoots out the fuse wire, Shunji, Teno's killer, fires and Komuro manages to fall down into the river, but scrambles back to finally subdue Shunji who falls into the mud and lies still ...
Now Komuro's money is gone, the hospital he'd wanted so much is now but a dream ... and back to sea he goes, to his old ship and his shipmates.
