The movie

A boxer would have never thought that saving a damsel in distress would make him a target for the Yakuza, the Chinese mafia, and the police. Prepare for an emotional rollercoaster from master Miike.

Leo, a young boxer who was recently diagnosed with a serious illness, crosses paths with Monica, a call girl on the run from a stalker. When Leo knocks the creep out, he ignites their love story, as well as an all-out war between the Yakuza, the Chinese triads and the Tokyo police force! The great, unstoppable Miike Takashi mixes romance and splatterfest in this orgasmic piece of filmmaking.
