From acclaimed director Takashi Mike, this is the greatest Samurai movies ever made. In Feudal Japan the era of the Samurai is waning. The sadistic young lord Naritsugu rapes and kills at will. No one can touch him because he is the Shogun`s young brother and thus above law. A senior government official realizes the situation will become more dangerous after Naritsugu ascends to a higher political position. After a wronged party publicly commits seppuku, a trusted older samurai, Shinzaemon, is secretly hired to assassinate him.
