Plot

Nami Matsuhima and her husband Jiro were a Japanese couple living in the United States. Unfortunately, Nami's life changes for the worse, when Jiro is killed by an explosion from a bomb that was in his car.

The police believe that Nami is responsible because Jiro had signed a life insurance policy the month before, which granted Nami $1.2 million dollars. She is sent to a women's prison and is assigned to a cell, next to another Japanese woman, Yukiko Kida. Nami learns from Yukiko and other prisoners that the warden likes to rape and torture several of the prisoners that are brought over by Zamira, the warden's favorite.

Meanwhile, Nami's friend and Jiro's former partner, Jimmy Yoshioka tells Nami about Jiro's lawyer career and had made some enemies, which leads Nami to believe she was framed. Then, Yukiko is raped by the warden and Nami decides to avenge her. Nami is brought over to the warden and kills him. She then, knocks out Zamira by slamming her head against the gate and grabs the keys. She, Yukiko and a bunch of other prisoners escape.

However, only Nami and Yukiko managed to fully escape. They are stranded and left to die in the Mexican desert and Nami learns that Yukiko is blind, and tells Nami that her boyfriend was killed by a gang leader and was also raped and blinded by him. Jimmy eventually finds them and helps them. Jimmy then tells her that all of Jiro's enemies have been killed, which throws them off. Nami decides to help Yukiko exact her revenge. She goes to the church, where the gang leader is getting married and shoots him dead.

Nami later finds out that Jiro had faked his death and confronts Jiro at their home (which is now left for sale). Nami finds out about Jiro's motives. Jiro escapes and Nami engages in a car chase which ends with Nami and Jiro in the desert. Jiro is about to kill Nami, when a scorpion stings him and is paralyzed. Nami takes the shotgun and kills him. She leaves his body in his car and set both on fire.
