If you drive in a nice car on Poker Street, you'll no doubt find a pink passport on your window inviting you to the Arizona Club. Inside the club, you'll loosen your necktie while watching Rose Rumi burlesque for your viewing pleasure.

Yoshioka, an undercover cop, has been assigned to unveil a dubious Tokyo flesh ring. While working undercover he reunites with his old flame  Rumi. Fashion clubs, nude modeling, and matchmaking businesses are all part of the conspiracy, but who is running the show? With Rumi's passion rekindled by Yoshioka's presence, he becomes the focus of secret eyes in the club. It's only a matter of time before his cover is blown. . .

'Yellow Line'

A hitman is hired to take out a Tokyo Customs Officer, but his employer betrays him and sends the cops. Seeking cover, he grabs Emi from a telephone booth and makes her his "newlywed" in order to board a train to Kobe.

Born in a prison and raised in an orphanage, the woman hating-hitman blends into the seedy Casbah of Kobe easily (although Emi, his female prisoner, stands out like a diamond in the rough). As the hitman hunts for the employer that betrayed him, Emi leaves clues for her boyfriend in hopes of finding help. But being in the hitman's grasp might be safer than she thinks. . .help isn't what it seems, when you're on the Yellow Line.
