[ Story ]

The first samurai period film from Tsukamoto Shinya who has captured international attention with Tetsuo The Iron Man and Fires on the Plain among others. Questions about life and death are brought into the open through ronin earnestly living in a farming village during the turbulent times of the late Edo period.
250 years free of warfare have impoverished samurai in the late Edo period. Tsuzuki Mokunoshin (Ikematsu Sosuke) has also left his fiefdom and lives with a farming family. He practices his swordsmanship by sparring with neighbor Ichisuke (Maeda Ryusei). He has also become close with Ichisuke's elder sister, Yu (Aoi Yu). One day the three witness a duel taking place within the grounds of a shrine.
