Synopsis: A gambler and underworld mover and shaker by trade, Ocho (Reiko Ike) moves to Kobe where she hopes to start a new life in the city but she’s kidnapped by a gang of punks who tie her up, rip off her kimono and carry out a vicious assault. When Ocho wakes up, she finds herself laying next to a dead woman and holding a bloody knife in her hand. Determined to find the men who did this to her, Ocho sets out into the streets of Kobe. Aided by a lone wolf adventurer (Ryohei Uchida), Ocho investigates a ruthless gang of cutthroats who are using indentured street walkers as drug mules to smuggle heroin from China.
