Summary, etc.:
As the feudal Shogun period is unravelling in late 19th-century Japan, widowed, low-ranking samurai Seibei devotes his life not to the art of war but to his two children and ailing mother. Hopeful that true happiness may at last find him when his childhood love divorces her husband, Seibei instead succumbs to fate when he is forced to face a renowned enemy warrior in a life-or-death battle.
