Takeshi Kitano returns to the yakuza genre that made him internationally famous. Beat Takeshi (Kitano’s acting persona) stars as Otomo, the leader of a low-level gang who’s always called on to take care of dirty work while the higher ups keep their hands clean. An assignment to reign in a rival gang’s operations becomes a battle to survive rife with power struggles, betrayals and outbursts of violence.
