[ Story ]

In a small town about to be transformed into a modern city, two rival groups of gang- sters seek power. One is the Miyazono Gumi, an old-fashioned group led by a woman boss, Keiko (Noriko Maki), and the other the newly risin9 Seishin Kai.
Keiko, tries to hire two shrewd profession- als, Hanamura (Akira Kobayashi) , well-known for the tattooed sign of the Jack on his chest, and Yuki (Ryohei Uchida), a loan gangster. Yuki, however, takes sides with t:1e Seishin Kai.
Hanamura, though well aware that Keiko has a slim chance of success, pledges to work for her moved by the burning spirit a- gainst violence of bartender lsamu of the Seishin-Kai controlled bar Bacchus and the manliness of Miyazono Kai foreman Numaken (Gen Mitamura).
To crush the Seishin Kai, Hanamura scouts girls from bars and cabarets under control of the Seishin Kai, while Seishin Kai boss Matsumura (Fujio Suga) orders Yuki to kill Hanamura. She does not obey his order but proposes to Hanamura instead to join hands with him and make money out of the feud be- tween the two groups.
On information offered by Yuki that the Seishin Kai is attempting to kidnap Keiko, Hanamura saves her after a fight with Seishin Kai men and Keiko finds she is falling in love with him.
After struggles between the Miyazono Gumi and Seishin Kai Hanamura finally realizes that a political boss, Nakai (Hosei Komatsu), is behind the scene for his own ends and ris- es against him with a knife in his hand.
