The people of Tawano are used to the yakuza. They know to avoid them, to get off the streets when fights are brewing. They know how to stay out of the middle and keep from becoming hostages.
At least, most of them do.
But Hiroshi is very good at making fatal mistakes- and when he finds himself held at knife point, there's only one person who can help him: Kazuo, the yakuza who controls the city, and the one who started the fight in the first place.
They're completely different, and as their paths keep crossing, neither of them can understand the other- but it's clear they'll have to, or the dangers that follow Kazuo could claim more the lives of more than just a few townsfolk.
