The bloody saga of Lady Snowblood draws to an exciting conclusion as the vengeful Yuki (Meiko Kaji) agrees to a dangerous mission in exchange for her life in director Toshiya Fujita's follow-up to his 1973 hit. Unexpectedly granted reprieve from the crimes she had committed by mysterious government agent Kikui (Shin Kishida), Yuki reluctantly agrees to assassinate anarchist Ransui (Juzo Itami) and recover an important government document from his possession on the grounds that if she completes the mission, she will avoid execution. When Yuki discovers that the document in question contains evidence of a grave injustice committed against Ransui, she quickly sides with the activist and vows to take revenge on Kikui and his army of assassins. First she fought for revenge, now she's fighting for justice, and there's sure to be hell to pay when Lady Snowblood unleashes her wrath and carves a path of destruction across the Japanese countryside.
