Synopsis: As the leader of a group of young robusts delinquents, Kaneda spent his nights tearing through the urban wastes, racing his motorbike against rival groups. One night, while riding with his gang, his friend Tetsuo suddenly encounters a strange boy – the product of human experimentation – and is injured in the ensuing crash.

However, a regimen of extreme experimental procedures has awakened a new power in his friend, and he is now consumed by madness…
