The masterpiece samurai period film by master filmmaker Kurosawa Akira. Upon painstaking research into the period, Kurosawa employed multiple cameras to simultaneously capture the unfolding true-to-life battles.

In the Warring States Period, peasants terrorized by bandit attacks decide to hire samurai to protect their village.
