The third film from the popular street car racing franchise. The film follows brooding loner Sean Boswell (Lucas Black), an outsider whose only connection to the world is through illegal street racing. To avoid jail time, Sean is sent out of the country to live with his uncle, sharing a cramped apartment in a low-rent section of Tokyo. In the land that gave birth to the majority of modified racers on the road, the simple street race has been replaced by drift racing, a deadly combination of brutal speed on heart stopping courses. When Sean unknowingly takes on a Yakuza gangster in his first race, he finds that the only way he can pay off the debt is to venture into the deadly realm of the Tokyo underworld, where the stakes are life and death.
