This is the second of three films which form Miike Takashi's celebrated 'Triad Society Trilogy'. Yuuji is an outsider. As a Japanese mobster holed up in Taipei working as a hitman for a Triad boss, he is far from his roots. Added to this complicated existence is the fact that his ex-wife has just dumped a young boy - probably their child - on his doorstep. As Yuuji continues to do business as usual, only a final, brutal shoot-out will bring him and the boy together.
