The story focuses around the 21 year old Makoto, a cool and level headed member of the G-boys gang. Makoto, talented with diffusing tense situations and keeping his friends out of harm's way possibly stumbles into more than he can handle. Is Makoto really in over his head? His new girlfriend's just been found murdered and a turf war is escalating between two rival gangs.
