After spending a year in solitary confinement, Matsu escapes from prison with six more convicts, followed by the guards who are led by a vengeful warden who wants her dead at all costs.
Matsu is sheltered by an incestuous prostitute on her run from the police, her ex-prison mate and a cop whose arm she hacked off.
Once again on the lam, Matsu is helped by a strip club worker who holds a grudge against the detective who's trying to find her.
Heroic Purgatory pushes the dazzling cinematic language of Eros + Massacre even further, presenting a bleak but dreamlike investigation into the political discourses taking place in early seventies Japan.
