When a revolt is imminent, the suspects are quickly rounded up and arrested, but one escapes which leads to one of the most exciting and violent stories from master filmmaker Kudo Eiichi.
With an all-star cast that perfectly brings 17th Century Japan to life, this tale brings together a mixture which includes a kindly drunken gambler, a mad monk, a philosopher and his niece, and a poor samurai. Together they launch a new plot against the government which brings about one of the greatest on-screen battles in movie history. A true classic and a cornerstone of Japanese Cinema.
