Directed by Seijun Suzuki, considered one of the most important and influential voices in Japanese Cinema, the film is set amidst the black markets and urban decay of Tokyo shortly after World War II had ended.
Maya (Yumiko Nogawa) a young girl from a remote village with nowhere to go, finds refuge with a gang of hookers living in a derelict building. The Women maintain order by adhering to a strict code, the most important ‘no sex without payment’. Those who break the code, run the risk of enuring appalling punishment, mostly at the hands of the gang’s ringleader, Komasa Sen (Satoko Kasai).
The harmony of the group s broken when a violent ex-soldier on the run from the police Ibuki, (Joe Shishido) seeks refuge in the building. All the women are drawn to Ibuki, especially Maya, resulting in trouble for both of them.
