One neon night in Tokyo, young boxer Leo meets his "first love", Monica. Although innocent, she must work as a call girl to feed her addiction and pay her depts. Unwittingly caught up in a drug-smuggling scheme, Leo and Monica are pursued throughout the night by a corrupt cop, a yakuza, his nemesis and a female assassin hired by the Chinese Triads.
