Nomi Kanjuro is a disgraced samurai who only carries an empty scabbard at his hip. He travels the country-side with his daughter, but is captured and sentenced to death for his earlier crimes. The clan leader who passes this sentence gives Kanjuro one chance: if in 30 days he can make the manís grief-stricken son laugh, Kanjuro wonít have to commit seppuku and will be set free. And while this seems to be a daunting task, Kanjuro (with the help of his daughter and two kindly guards) comes up with consistently more inventive ways to bring even the slightest smile to the kidís face. Will Nomi make it in time?
