After hearing that one billion yen has gone missing, Joe discovers he is not the only one who will do whatever it takes to get his hands on the cash. Finally, 'Murder Unincorporated' (1965) follows the execution of a powerful underworld boss by the mysterious 'Joe of Spades'. When colleagues begin to fear for their own lives, the assassin agency Murder Unincorporated is called in to deal with the problem.
