Here is an action-oriented update of the legendary vengeance movie, JOSHU 701-GO SASORI. Based on Tooru Shinohara's original manga, this is the sweeping story of Nami Matsushima, sent to a women's penetentary on trumped-up attempted murder charges against a rookie cop named Kitami. As the series begins, she retaliates against Chief-Warden Gouda [skewring his eye with a spike] and escapes from the prison. Constantly aware "there's no freedom in the outside world," Nami is motivated by a thirst for revenge against the people who had betrayed her. She doesn't realize her biggest enemy is "the corrupt system called society."

Director Kousuke Suzuki has concentrated mostly on big-budget TV productions, usually for cable's powerhouse WOWOW. Here is the complete 2004 mini-series of 8 episodes starring Takami Mizuhashi as a character popularized by Meiko Kaji in the 1972 SASORI revenge pic. Despite a steady diet of TV work, Kousuke Suzuki also wrote and directed the cult pink films STOP THE BITCH (2004-09).
