Wandering Ginza Butterfly
Cult film icon Meiko Kaji (Female Convict Scorpion) stars as a former gang leader who must fight to defend her uncle's pool hall when a rival gang attempts to muscle in on the business. Sentenced to three years in prison for murdering a yakuza member, one-time street tough Nami (Kaji) emerges from her prison stint a shamed woman condemned to life in the shadowy underworld. Eventually, Nami returns to the city to live with her uncle, who owns a pool hall, and connects with shady pimp Ryuji (Tsunehiko Watase). All seems well when Nami lands a job as a hostess at a trendy club in the Ginza district, though the bright lights of the local shops suppress a swelling darkness that will soon threaten to pull her back into a world of bloodlust and treachery. A rival gang is attempting to muscle in on the club, and in order to save her uncle's business Nami will have to wield a pool cue with the skill of a seasoned pool shark. But sometimes a pool cue isn't enough, and you need to reach for a sword in order to make your point. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
