The Samurai Hustle gang are back for another wild mix of action, heroism and laughter!

During the Edo Period, it was mandatory for feudal lords to perform expensive procession marches – called Sankin Kotai – to pay respect to the shogun. Penniless country bumpkins Lord Naito of Yunagawa and his samurai have just managed to complete their ritual visit. After surviving the journey, and even finding a wife, Naito has every reason to celebrate. But news of their villages being ravaged by rebels prompt the men to swiftly return home to Yunagawa in order to save their land. They must hike up their kimonos and sprint all the way home in 2 days! When their old nemesis, Lord Nobutoki, reappears it becomes clear they stand to lose more than just farmland. Will Naito and his crew be able to thwart the treacherous Nobutoki’s plans and protect their villagers?
