The hero who has a heart doomed to burst if he stops singing "pops." Singing and dancing pops up abruptly in the story and creates a surreal-funny atmosphere.


JK (Masao Kusakari) was trapped and forced to take a medicine. According to JK's buddy (B-saku Sato), the medicine will make JK's blood vessels to burst, and in order to suppress this effect, he needs to sing "pops". To get hold of the antidote, JK asks Tetsuo (Claude Maki), a stringer, and begins to search the one who trapped him. But Kyoko Honma (Yoka Wao) who was JK's apprentice comes in to block JK's attempt. The one who forced JK to take the medicine is in fact an undercover agent who is planning to take over the nation. JK is about to fight against this underground group to protect his country, and his own life!
