Synopsis
It is the end of Japan's feudal era. A group of unemployed samurai are enlisted to bring down a sadistic lord and prevent him from ascending to the throne and plunging the country into a war torn future. Lord Naritsugu is a sadistic and terrifying ruler, a man who goes to great lengths to bring fear to the people and so romanticized with the ways of war and death that his leadership is questioned. His reckless behavior is seen as too high risk for the nation should he ascend to an higher position, therefore respected samurai Shinzaemon is secretly called on to gather a team of samurai to assassin him.
