Following the nuclear World War III and the non-nuclear World War IV, Japan passed an act known as the Refugee Special Action Policy, inviting war refugees from all across Asia to enter Japan. Thousands of Asian refugees took Japan up on the offer to enter their country, and have taken low-paying jobs handed out to them by various companies looking for a cheap work force. Gino, a combat pilot and World War IV veteran, is one such refugee, working as a helicopter pilot for a corporate CEO. He is angry and depressed and plots revenge against Japanese society, starting with assassinating his employer. When Section 9 is sent to investigate his plots, Kusanagi eventually concludes that Gino lacks the fortitude to act out his fantasies, and is just one in the long line of pitiful souls who dream about fulfilling goals they can never accomplish.
The episode contains strong references to the film Taxi Driver, which has many similar themes (a returning ex-soldier, scarred by a war the public wants to forget, and focusing his anger outwardly into fantasies of revenge and bloodshed).
