In this funny Japanese adventure, the great 16th-century samurai warrior Yoshimitsa ends up frozen in a glacial crevasse while looking for the villains who abducted his wife. Four hundred years later his remains are discovered by skiers and sent to LA to be studied. Miraculously, the warrior awakens after he thaws out. He soon escapes into the wild strange world of California during the 1980s and resumes his search. He is pursued by an evil, self-serving researcher and assisted by a nice young woman. Mayhem ensues.
