[ Story ]

Masayoshi (Hideki Takahashi), deputy boss of the Ushio gamblers is forced by circum- stances to kill a leading member of the Ezu, a gang. Masayoshi finds himself in the same jail as Eikichi (Mikio Narita), executive of the Sawada gambling group. But Masayoshi's enemy from the hostile gang, is also in the same prison. Brotherhood develops between Masayochi and Eikichi after the latter saves Masayoshi from an attempt on his life.
The Japanese military, order the gang boss- es to gather Asakusa's whore house women to be sent to Manchuria to "heighten the morale" of Imperial troops. K6nosuke (Akira Kato), boss of the Ushio family, is too proud to obey and is killed. Masayoshi learns of the death of his boss through the prison grapevine.
The boss of the Sawada family invades the Ushios' territory with the Ezus. Masayoshi is released from jail just before the anniver- sary of his boss death. He sponsors a gam- bling session, but this is nearly foiled by rivals who kidnap Teppomatsu (Yasushi Suzuki). When Masayoshi goes to rescue Tepp6matsu his own life is threatened but he is saved by Seiji, brother-in-law of Eikichi.
An expensive social service job of rebuild- ing Asakusa's Goddess of Mercy temple is assigned to the Ushio family. Keiz6 (Shigeru Tsuyuguchi), the slain boss' only son starts helping Masayoshi, but the fund-raising at- tempt by Masayoshi for a big gambling session is ruined by his enemies who kill Keiz6, and Eikichi breaks his ties with Sawadas.
At the reception for the new Ezu boss Eikichi kills the enemy leaders, but is slain, and Masa- yoshi laments the high price he has had to pay for avenging the death of his boss.
