A masterless Edo Period samurai Tsuzuki ekes out a living providing protection to a small farming village. He teaches a local boy the way of the sword and quietly years after the boy’s older sister Yu. With the arrival of a mysterious ronin looking to build a mercenary army, and band marauding bandits on the edge of town, Tsuzuki’s peaceful existence will soon descend into violent chaos.

This poetic, unsentimental questioning of the cruel code of the warrior delivers moments of blistering intensity and ultraviolence.
