Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Mythical wandering swordsman Zatoichi (Shintaro Katsu) finds himself in dire straits after being duped into killing a man with a large gambling debt in the 19th chapter of the long-running samurai saga. Almost immediately after Zatoichi completes his mission of terminating the troublesome debtor, the man's sister arrives at the yakuza headquarters with the money needed to pay off her siblings' debt. Realizing that he has been duped by the crafty gangsters, Zatoichi must now make reparations by freeing the girl from the evil boss and escorting her to safety.
