Kitano plays Murakawa, a Tokyo yakuza tiring of gangster life. Along with a few of his henchmen, he is sent by his boss to Okinawa to help end a gang war, supposedly to mediate between two warring clans. He finds that the dispute between the clans is insignificant and whilst wondering why he was sent to Okinawa at all, Murakawa's headquarters are bombed and he and his gang are ambushed in a bar.

In that film you had little kids acting like grown-up gangsters, while here we have real gangsters acting like little children.

The events vary from very violent gangster shootouts to Murakawa and his fellow yakuzas doing fun stuff to pass the time (which is just as fun and funny to watch).
