in the docks of Yokohama, a young dock worker tries to break up a waterfront strike
out of a misguided sense of loyalty to his crooked boss, but accidentally kills
the union leader. A tale of suppressed passions and violence of youth, painted
in the vital strokes of the Japanese New Wave: melodrama and poetry, blood and
politics, rock 'n' roll.

in 1931. Following his graduation from Waseda University, he entered Shochiku
