Down to their last cigarettes, Tatsuya Mihashi (the weasel in High and Low) and Michiyo Aratama (Sword of Doom) get off the bus to become a waitress and a noodle deliverer on the pleasure island, but things speedily get complicated, in an ironic/tragicomic slice of the lower side of life from Kawashima (Sun in the Last Days of the Shogunate).
