Alternate Title

Back Street Girls -ゴクドルズ


When a yakuza makes a mistake, his boss usually asks him to cut his little finger off. However, for three unlucky aspiring gangsters who’ve just cost their boss millions, the price is a little higher. They have two choices: honourable suicide or…go to Thailand and receive gender reassignment and extensive plastic surgery so they can be beautiful idols. The guys agree and become super popular, but this wasn’t quite what they signed up for and the strain of living a double life begins to take its toll…
