Set over one night in Tokyo, we follow Leo, a young boxer down on his luck as he meets his ‘first love’ Monica, a callgirl and an addict but still an innocent.
Little does Leo know, Monica is unwittingly caught up in a drug-smuggling scheme, and the two are pursued through the night by a corrupt cop, a yakuza, his nemesis, and a female assassin sent by the Chinese Triads.
All their fates interwine in spectacular Miike style, at his most anarchic and fun.
Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike is one of the most notable and controversial directors working today. Although Miike is known internationally for his horror-like elements, he has worked in many different genres, often combining them in a unique and audacious way.
