Keiko (Rina Takeda) is the daughter of a legendary sushi chef. Hoping to follow in his footsteps, she enters into training under her father’s guidance. His kung fulike regime is rigid, pushing her to impossible mental and physical limits and Keiko, unable to bear the strain, runs away from home. Finding work at a rural hot springs inn, she is dismayed to find that her co-workers are an eccentric lot who have it in for the new girl. Complicating matters is the arrival of a group of employees from Komatsu Pharmaceutical there to sample the inn’s famous specialty sushi. Following them in pursuit of revenge is Yamada (Kentaro Shimazu), a medical researcher betrayed by the Komatsu president. Disgruntled and seeking revenge, Yamada injects the hotel sushi with a drug that not only brings it to life, but also turns it into ferocious, bloodthirsty killers! Flying Sushi, Big teethed Sushi, singing Sushi, fucking Sushi, giant Sushi, razor Sushi, and many others will astonish you!
