Summary
After his crime boss is murdered in a Tokyo gang war, a yakuza gangster is exiled to Los Angeles. He has a big bag of money and a really bad attitude and hooks up with his half-brother who is the leader of a small-time drug ring. Together, with a local street hustler, the brothers declare war on the other local drug traffickers. This ignites into the bloodiest, dirtiest, nastiest power struggle L.A. has ever seen
