After he’s deserted by his partners in crime, a Japanese gangster (writer – director Takeshi Kitano) moves to L.A. in hopes of reinventing himself. Instead, he meets an unlikely comrade (Omar Epps) and finds himself in the middle of a drug war. But can Kitano’s impressive critical cred land him a crossover hit in the urban action genre?
