Nikkatsu's unrelated semi-sequel to the previous year's Hachigatsu No Nureta Suna was again directed by Toshiya Fujita, and is a bit more successful in handling its melodramatic story line. Maki Kawamura and Yuko Katagiri star in the story of a female department store clerk who becomes obsessed with finding a rakish young robber who holds up the place. She finally finds the thuggish object of her affections after he rescues her from being gang-raped on the local boardwalk. An interesting low-budget exploitation piece in that it tackles the attraction many women feel for "bad boys" without painting the woman as somehow morally deficient.
