Kazu is the only son of a prominent family. In spite of his distinguished upbringing, he spends most of his time gambling all his money away in Tokyo. He meets Machiko, the number one pole dancer at a club in Kabukicho, Shinjuku. The two start a fling based on mutual attraction and attempt to begin a life together in Kazu’s home town. However, his family is unwilling to recognize the relationship.
Machikosoon returns to Tokyo and Kazu comes to the realization that he has no way to pay off the massive debt he’s racked up with a dangerous loan shark named Yamahata. Out of frustration, Kazu goes to Tokyo to confirm his love for Machiko. Meanwhile, Yamahata has offered to cancel his debt if he hands Machiko over as payment.
