Without papers, Samao Daikoku is stuck in the life of a street drifter. To break free, Samao decides to steal gold kept in the locker of gangster Daikichi Ebisu. But what he finds in the locker is more than what he bargained for: a computer hard drive containing the names and information of people to be eliminated. People at the bottom of social ladder: vagrants, homeless people, prostitutes. He hides the disk but gets caught and locked up along with a young prostitute, Ami. More valuable than gold, Samao gets to learn about where he came from...
