Three brothers, Kuroki, Jirō, and Sabu, find themselves pitted against each other as rivals in the underground world of the Yakuza. Jirō, alongside his girlfriend Mizuhara, plots to rob Sabu and his gang, stealing 20 million yen. However, when Kuroki learns of Jirō’s scheme, he journeys to track down his brothers and take the money for his own rival gang.

A "ferocious, dynamic yakuza thriller" (Los Angeles Times) directed by Kinji Fukasaku, (Battle Royale, Violent Panic: The Big Crash) Wolves, Pigs and Men captures the darkness and brutality of the criminal underworld. With elements of French New Wave, film noir, and music by Isao Tomita, Wolves, Pigs and Men is a gritty, uncompromising work that established Fukasaku as a master of the Yakuza genre.
