In this lively actioner, a samurai warrior adopts an American boy and later gives him the treasured family sword. Unfortunately, this rouses the jealousy of his wicked stepbrother who is involved with yakuzas and illegal sword-fighting contests, and who vows that he will get revenge upon the Yankee brat.
