Set in the late 19th century, a shipwrecked trio of African-American Dixieland jazz musicians find themselves in war-torn feudal Japan in this charming and genuinely funny Japanese comedy. Not only do the foreigners teach the Japanese war lords a thing or two about music, they also become symbols of freedom to the oppressed.
