The Stray Cat Rock series is a quintet of films starring Meiko Kaji (Lady Snowblood) as a female gang leader in Japan.
Set in the turbulent 1960s and 70s, Kaji's character, Mako, is a badass biker chick who leads a gang of socially-unacceptable delinquents. The films follow Mako and her friends as they battle rival biker gangs, run-ins with the police, and inner conflicts between themselves.
The series' themes of youth rebellion, social alienation, a male-dominated society and the fight against injustice serve as a backdrop to Kaji's powerful performance as Mako. With its timeless message of action, suspense and social justice, Stray Cat Rock is an essential piece of Japanese cinema that is sure to remain relevant for many years to come.
