A young ronin (played by a brooding Sosuke Ikematsu, THE VANCOUVER ASAHI and also this year’s SAMURAI’S PROMISE) appears in farming village on his way through the countryside. Offering to help with the harvest, he is taken in by the farmers. The farmers son takes an immediate liking to the ronin, begging him to show him how to fight, while the enigmatic farmer’s daughter (Yu Aoi, WHAT A WONDERFUL FAMILY, HONOKAA BOY, HANA & ALICE) sends beguiling looks his way.
Shortly thereafter an experienced samurai (played by the director himself) comes through town looking for men to join him on his way to Edo. The ronin begrudgingly accepts the samurai’s offer, whilst the farmer’s son makes enough of an impression to be invited along as well. But when a band of roaming thugs appears outside of the village, it may spell a change of plans for the trio and doom for both the ronin and the village...
