Summary, etc.:
The farmers of a small agrarian village are weary of having all their hard work exploited by the bandits who steal their harvest and leave them to scrimp and starve. So they attempt to hire samurai to defend them. They have no gold to offer, only rice, so they can only hope to attract men who are desperate or altruistic or have something to prove. Still, they find seven warriors to take on their enemies. Set in a futuristic world that has just witnessed the end of a massive war, where scores of villages are terrorized by mechanised bandits.
