[ Story ]

Tsuzuki has been travelling around the country but has come back to Tokyo just in time for trouble. A friend tells him about a man who was killed because he saw an armed-car holdup. He knew the man and is going to investigate, and Tsuzuki goes with him.
There they meet Asako, the dead man's sister, and Tsuzuki recognizes the bullet that killed her brother for it is of the sort used only by a gangster named Namekawa. Thinking this over, Tsuzuki goes to his Friend, Ken, and tells what he knows, not realizing that Ken was a member of the group that robbed the car and killed Asako's brother. Keri goes at once to the gang leader and they decide to get rid of Tsuzuki before he can cause them any trouble.
At the same time, however, the members of the gang, anxious to get their cut of the money, begin to rebel, and in the resultant fight a number are killed -- including Namekawa. The survivor goes straight to Asako who is waiting for him, since she was in the affair from the beginning. He dies and leaves her all the money. But just then Tsuzuki returns and the case is closed.
