[ Story ]
Masaaki Kagari (Akira Kobayash·i) is the recruiter and protector of hostesses at the Club Rose.
One day he visits Club Aron, to complain about attempts to lure hostesses from Club Rose. Aron's madam Hisayo (Akiko Koyama) reminds him of a tragic experience five years before, when a lovely girl named Kumi (Mitsuko Oka) committed double suicide with a man in a hotel. For Aron's madam is Kumi's elder sister.
Kagari's friend Hayazaki (Tatsuya Fuji) introduces him to Chie (Rumi Koyama), the young sister of the man who died with Kumi, who has come to Tokyo to learn the truth about her brother's death. Kagari sends them both away. But he continues to be haunted by the warmed-over memories.
When Club Aron is found selling bootleg whisky Kagari learns that Hisayo has been a tool in the hands of the Akune group who are also responsible for trying to steal his girls, and that Fujikura, the public prosecutor who presided over the case of Kumi's death and ruled it suicide, is now the personal lawyer of the Akune group.
Kagari and his friend Jiro (Eiji Go) help Sai, a Korean businessman, set up a club at the site of the fire and deaths five years before. Hisayo is installed as madam but Fujikura sets a frame-up and has it closed.
