When they get to an agency to leave their photos, it seems like an amazing opportunity has opened up for them, one that is impossible to pass up. To follow their dream, they are to travel to Japan, where models of Latin origin are highly favored. Upon arriving in the country, they make the terrifying discovery that they have been victims of a scam. Now, like slaves, they belong to the Yakuza, the mafia that controls the business of drugs, arms, kidnapping, prostitution, and underground bars.
