Film details


Joji Hayabusa, a retired boxer, lives a solitary life and drinks heavily. He is approached by Temma who asks him to become his trainer. Despite his hostility towards Temma (who is simultaneously Joji's younger alter ego and the suspected agent of his brother's death), Joji takes him on as a pupil and subjects him to a rigorous course of training.
