One of the best ninja versus samurai films of all time features the great Ose Koichi as
Shintaro, the Samurai getting involved in the intrigue between the Iga and Koga ninja.
While helping a wounded agent of the Iga, Shintaro is attacked by Koga agents who
think he received an item that they had already killed in an effort to obtain. While he did
not receive any item, the dying Iga ninja had whispered a cryptic phrase to him;
something that would lead him into the middle of an attempt to overthrow the
Shogunate and threaten his very life.
Can Shintaro's expert swordsmanship defeat
the deadly skills of the Koga ninja, a group of heartless assassins like no other?
