Emptiness isn't misery, but the beginning of something new...


This is one half of a duo of straight-to-video yakuza pictures, with which Kiyoshi Kurosawa did the unprecedented thing of remaking a film immediately after finishing it. His motivations had very little to do with creative poverty, but rather with the opportunity to explore the same subject in two decidedly different ways.


After finding his 10 year-old daughter murdered, Niijima simmers for six long years before he is able to exact revenge. He and his wife are dealing with the pain of their loss by keeping the girl's room in tact and going about their lives at home and at work. The wife seems to be doing well while Niijima wants revenge. After six years of searching, Niijima finally tracks down the man who raped and killed his daughter. At first he seems to be letting him off easy only to lose it and eventually he tortures the man to death. He buries him, hopefully along with the memories of what happened to his daughter.

Niijima begins coming home late after going out for drinks after work. His wife becomes concerned about his mood and how things are going at work. When Niijima meets an old high school friend, he is offered a job in an import/export business, that he later discovers is a front for a gang that is often at war with rival organizations. Soon Niijima is an assassin. To say he goes off the deep end would be a gross understatement!!
