Something moved down there.

Come look.

No way.

Take a look.

It's a sewer. There's no way

anything's moving down here.

- You're just imagining things.

- No, something moved.

- I'll grab some tools.

- Leave it.

- I've got to open it and take a look.

- We might catch a cold.

Directed by SEIJUN SUZUKI

Hey, you, gimme a beer.

Hey, it's Miyamoto.

What a dangerous welcome.

Sorry about that.

You guys, beat it.

Osawa, I want to see Oyane.

The boss is off at headquarters.

Headquarters, huh?

Yeah.

He's also running

a Turkish bathhouse in Minami-cho.

What's Mihara doing these days?

He's just a regular citizen now.

That's good to hear.

By the way,

what about his injury?

He works in an oden stall these days.

Poor cripple.

Pretty useless for anything else.

Osawa, watch your mouth.

Okay.

Call your boss and tell him I'm here.

Okay.

The chairman's private bath.

- Chairman Oyane, it's Osawa for you.

- What does he want?

May I ask why you're calling?

He says a Mr. Miyamoto

has stopped by.

Miyamoto? Give me that phone.

- I'm going to buy a new spring coat.

- What color?

- Light blue.

- Nice.

When did he get out?

Did he say anything about the stones?

Bring him here.

Treat him well.

Don't tell him anything

about the stones.

Get my things ready.

The boss's room is

on the fourth floor.

Welcome back.

When did you get out?

This morning.

If you'd have let us know,

we'd have sent someone for you.

I don't deserve that.

Osawa, don't just stand there.

Go get Miyamoto a drink.

Sorry I didn't send you anything

while you were away.

I've been pretty busy myself.

So I see. Nice place.

Oh, it's nothing.

I've actually come with a request.

What is it?

That's what friends are for.

It's about those items for sale.

What are you talking about?

The stones.

I want to get rid of them.

The stones, eh?

Let's have a drink.

Congratulations.

I want to get rid of the stones

and give the money to Mihara.

Mihara, eh?

As you know,

Mihara was crippled in that incident

that sent me to prison

for three years.

I never mentioned your name

the whole time I was inside.

Let's discuss

the terms of the settlement.

Listen, Oyane,

when I was in prison,

I was worried about him.

The reason I didn't talk was

I wanted to give the stones to Mihara.

Do me a favor

and forget about those stones.

I want to give them to him.

I see.

Sure. Why not?

Then I'll arrange for the sale.

Perfect. There's a foreign buyer

in Yokohama.

That's great.

I've been away for three years.

They wouldn't even remember me.

Thanks a lot.

Consider it done.

You do have the stones, right?

Not at the moment,

but if you set it up, I'll bring them.

Okay.

Miyamoto, don't you want

to take a bath?

Is the guy who crippled you

still in prison?

Akiko, let's not talk about the past.

You've got no guts.

- If I were you, I'd do this to him!

- Cut it out!

- How's business?

- Not good.

Really.

Everybody's hurting these days.

No smoking!

Oh, well.

I guess I'll go visit Arita.

Akiko, don't get involved with Arita.

What are you talking about?

If I don't go see him,

I can't make a living.

Rebellious young people.

- Keep up the good work.

- Thank you very much.

Miyamoto!

When did you get back?

Was that Detective Watanabe?

Yes, that was him...

from back then.

- What happened to your leg?

- I've still got one left.

You didn't even want to do the job,

but we took you along anyway.

You got the rough end of it.

No, I was greedy too.

I'll find some way to pay you back.

By the way, I heard

your little sister came to town.

She was sitting right there

just a moment ago.

She's headed in a bad direction.

I'm tired.

Once more.

Once more!

Okay.

Arita.

Hello? Who is it?

It's Oyane.

This is Arita.

Yes... yes.

Got it.

I'll get back to you right away.

- That's it for today.

- What happened?

I've got work to do.

Blow it off!

- Here you go. For three sessions.

- Let's go spend it somewhere.

I've gotta work.

Hey.

I gotta work, I told you.

I'm locking up. Go home.

If you won't play with me,

I'll follow you.

Go right ahead.

I'll be following you!

What are you doing?

Open the door!

You're so mean!

Open the door!

That warehouse rooftop over there.

Mr. Oyane is seeing Mr. Thomson

at the Yokohama Hotel.

In case our deal

doesn't come through.

Osawa, he says he wants

to verify the diamonds are real.

Miyamoto.

Keep a lookout.

Don't move!

Piece of cake. Hand 'em over.

Damn!

YOKOHAMA HOSPITAL

Any idea who those guys

with the masks were?

Nope.

But that swine didn't have

to swallow those stones.

- What a greedy bastard!

- Do you suppose he's dead?

If he dies and they perform

an autopsy,

they'll find the stones

in his stomach.

Then the police will have the stones.

That's no good.

He's conscious.

You've certainly been

through an ordeal!

What's today's date?

February 8th.

That's right.

You're going to be fine.

What's your name?

Mihara.

Mihara?

Where do you live?

Shinjuku, Tokyo.

Shinjuku?

Mr. Mihara,

you're in a hospital.

Do you know why you're here?

How did you fall off

the roof of that building?

Did you jump?

Were you pushed?

I've got a bad leg.

I slipped.

I'm sorry.

So you slipped and fell, is that right?

Were you alone?

Was anyone else there?

If those guys wind up

with the stones, it's all over.

I was going to give them

to Mihara anyway.

If it ends this way, so be it.

Well, if you're just giving up,

you mind if I take 'em?

How're we supposed

to get them if the diamond...

- If the stones are in his stomach.

- Shut up.

You're the one who'll be

driving him to the crematorium.

Oh, I get it!

Diamonds don't burn.

Very clever idea, boss.

Diamonds do burn.

They are charcoal, after all.

Diamonds burn?

I don't believe it!

If it were me, I'd get to Mihara

as quickly as possible.

What do you say we get

our hands on him and slice him open?

Idiot! Cool your head.

There are still detectives around.

But if we cut him open,

it could be worth

four or five million yen.

We don't know

whether he's dead or alive.

I slipped and fell.

Mihara.! Mihara.!

He's gone.

- Doctor, will there be an autopsy?

- What?

An autopsy?

There's no need for that.

It was an accidental death.

I see.

Arrangements for the body

can be made with his relatives.

Boss, the cops are leaving.

Boss.

One hundred yen.

Thank you very much.

Good night.

He's a strange one.

To your left.

She's a family member.

Younger sister, huh?

Your brother mentioned you.

Elder brother.

Akiko.

It's his own fault!

Our sincerest condolences

on your loss.

Your brother was

very important to the boss,

and the boss wishes

to provide for his funeral.

Arita! You!
