In post-war Japan, a tubercular gangster reluctantly seeks aid from a jaded and often-intoxicated physician. A fetid swamp symbolizes the endemic corruption of the Yakuza-controlled town. Gripping from start to finish, it is the first of many collaborations between Kurosawa and actor Toshiro Mifune.
