Synopsis

Japanese action feature directed by Kinji Fukasaku. Former military marksman Shozo Hirono (Bunta Sugawara) embarks on a journey into the gangster underworld of post-war Hiroshima. Working his way through the ranks, Hirono navigates a variety of betrayals and double-crosses to become a respected mob boss. Despite his success, a disillusioned Hirono struggles to come to terms with the lack of respect shown between rival families, who continually ignore the traditional ways of the samurai.
