This film of the sleepy-eyed ronin series sees the orphan swordsman wander into a town and stumble upon the opportunity to conduct righteous deeds. With the smaller acts of kindness aside the man finds a larger plot is a foot, which involves a corrupt court system, an honest and well-intentioned public official and lots of danger for all involved.
