Dispatched by his boss to find a suitable candidate to perform the contract killing of the Hong Kong boss of a rival gang, Ishioka (Tarumi) chances upon a penniless down-on-his-luck young man named Nakata (Akagi) nursing a scotch in a snazzy drinking joint. With Ishioka left out of action with a prosthetic arm after a former job has gone wrong, he now acts as a trainer for would-be hitmen, taking them into the household he shares with his blind sister Kikuyo (Sasamori) and training them up as efficient killing machines. As his protégé, the charming Nakata is particularly quick to learn how to wield a Colt 45, and the success of the mission seems assured. As Kikuyo begins falling for their new lodger, Nakata pledges to use his fee to send her for an operation with an eye specialist in Kobe. But complications set in when Nakata becomes reacquainted with Chikako (Shiraki), a damsel in distress whom he gallantly rescued from a group of hoods in an early scene. It soon transpires that neither Nakata nor Chikako are exactly who they seem.

In Yukosuka, many are able to benefit financially, legally and illegally, by the presence of the American naval base established after the war. Kinta, who is low level thug within the Himori yakuza, takes care of the yakuza's pig farm but provides some muscle in shaking down among others shopkeepers who cater and this benefit from the lucrative American military trade. Kinta is often asked to sacrifice himself for the yakuza, the promise being that the yakuza will ultimately recognize the sacrifice with bonuses and promotion within the organization. Kinta's girlfriend, Haruko, a barmaid, doesn't like his life and would prefer that they escape Yukosuka to Kawasaki where they could get jobs in her uncle's factory, something that Kinta continually resists in not wanting to be a "wage slave". Haruko is also continually pressured by her mother to prostitute herself, Mr. Gordon who is willing to pay top dollar to be his kept mistress. Kinta and Haruko's fates will be partly affected by the power struggle within the yakuza, Kinta's cohorts who may be willing to give him up for their own benefit, his boss, Tetsuji, who believes he is dying, and Himori who will do whatever necessary to retain control.

On August 15, ten years after the Pacific War, five people meet at a station. Their purpose is to dig out a cache of morphine -- now worth sixty million yen -- that HASHIMOTO, an army medical officer, buried in an air-raid shelter in this city on the day the war ended. The five are: SHIMA, a beautiful woman who claims that she is HASHIMOTO's younger sister and that her brother is dead; NAKADA, a pharmacist; ONUMA, who owns a Chinese restaurant; YAMAMOTO, a thug; and SAWAI, who says he is a junior high school teacher. But HASHIMOTO originally had only three accomplices -- and hid the morphine late at night, so they did not know each other's identities. There is one person too many in the group, but they do not know whom. A butcher shop now stands over the old air-raid shelter. The five decide to rent a vacant house across the street, and dig a tunnel to the butcher shop. They set up a phony real estate office in the house, which the landlord has rented to them under the condition that they hire his son SATORU. They start digging, but run out of money to continue the work, and they leave the city to raise it. ONUMA watches for a chance to betray the others, and when he comes back to the city, he tries to conspire with SAWAI. Detectives call at the house to inquire about YAMAMOTO, who is suspected of committing robbery. Feeling that time is now against them, they start digging the tunnel again, but problems continue to occur, and relations among them deteriorate. The street is scheduled for a renewal project, and soon they will have to vacate the house. Tractors begin to appear on the street, which causes the house to tilt and throws the men in the tunnel into a panic. When they at last reach a point under the butcher shop, YAMAMOTO and SAWAI, who have been feuding, get into a fight. SAWAI kills YAMAMOTO, but he himself is crushed to death under the steel drum containing the morphine they have been after. SHIMA tries to entice SATORU -- whom she has seduced -- to kill ONUMA and NAKADA, so she can have the morphine to herself. In the meanwhile, however, ONUMA discovers that NAKADA is SHIMA's lover, and not one of HASHIMOTO's original accomplices. NAKADA and ONUMA square off to fight; SHIMA intervenes, and offers them each a beer. The beer is poisoned, and the two men die. SATORU witnesses this episode, panics, and reveals everything to the people of the town. In a heavy rain storm SHIMA runs away with the morphine, with the police in pursuit. She falls from a bridge into a raging river and dies.
