According to an interview on the US DVD with Kazuhiko Yamaguchi, Chiba's stuttering was the direct result of Yamaguchi insulting his acting. Prompting Sonny to joke that he might as well stutter, to which he replied, "Go ahead, no one will know the difference."



Picking up a few years after the end of the first film, Nami Higuchi returns as she hunts down Hoshiden, the man who killed her father. Nami saves a prostitute named Hanae from some gangsters by gambling for her, which draws the attention of gang boss Aiboshi. Nami then gets a job as a hostess in a bar run by an old friend, hoping that the clientele might be able to offer some clues as to the whereabouts of Hoshiden. There, she meets Ryuji, a stuttering pimp who is also having trouble with Aiboshi. Nami eventually finds a connection between Aiboshi's gang and Hoshiden and she teams up with Ryuji to take them down and get her revenge.
