[ Story ]
A group of Shinjuku hippies fights with a band of hoods in a small conservative town reigned over by a gangster big shot, Yoshitaro Araki (Yoshio lnaba), and to win back one of its members, Takaaki (Takeo Chii), Araki's son now confined at his father's home.
Takaaki loves hippie girl Furiko (Meiko Kaji), hiding in the town to find a chance to meet him. Realizing that the hippies want to release Takaaki, Yoshitaro orders his men to catch Furiko and she falls into their hands and is taken to Yoshitaro's home.
A seesaw fight occurs between the hippies and Yoshitaro's "bodyguards." But the hip- pies succeed in catching Takaaki and try to exchange him with Furiko, but lose him again.
Meanwhile, Takaaki, "brainwashed" by his father, now seems, devoid of power to fight with his foes but gradually regains his fight- ing spirit.
Seeing Furiko being sexually molested by his father's men and facing death, Takaaki shoots one of them to death and leaves his dungeon home with Furiko.
But Furiko is killed later in a hippie-hood- lum fight and Takaaki dies from a bullet fired by his father.
