[ Story ]

Kurosu Ryutaro, once a welter-weight boxer, inadvertently kills a young hoodlum in a street brawl. It was in self-defense, but sick at heart, he decides to sign on the S.S. Brazil Maru.
However, sailing is delayed for ten days and Ryutaro finds himself at a loose end. When he saves a boy from being run over by a car the lad's sister Sakae offers him a room until his ship sails.
In the ensuing ten days, things happen thick and fast, initiating Ryutaro into the ways of a tough harbor city, teeming with men dealing in shady business, including extortion from the weak like Sakae, who operates a bar to support herself and her brother.
But Ryutaro settles everything for his two friends before he sails away to begin a new life.
