Synopsis

Wildly violent 1970s Japanese sexploitation picture. Reiko Ike plays Ocho Inoshika, a gambler and pickpocket operating out of 1920s Tokyo who, at a young age, witnessed the brutal murder of her father who was a detective who had learned too much about a local politician. While in a gambling parlour, Ocho witnesses the attempt on a man's life by a young anarchist, and sees a few men killed in the ensuing fray. Ocho agrees to one of the dying men's last request to find his sister, Yuki, and buy her out of a life of prostitution. Ocho tries to buy her back from the brothel, but he instead opts to have her risk her own virtue in a game of chance against another female gambler named Christina (Christina Lindberg). Christina, on the other hand, is not only a female gambler but also a foreign agent sent to help stop the anarchists. She and Ocho strike up a friendship, or at least a begrudging respect for one another, and discover that there's a connection between the two of them, the anarchist, and the criminals who run the brothel - and it's all going to lead to cold hearted revenge and yet more blood and violence...
