A threat is uttered, a blade is drawn, a flash of cold steel and then... A dozen attackers now lie silent, dispatched by the lightening sword of one blind man: Zatoichi.
A humble masseur and gambler, Zatoichi wanders the countryside of early Japan, going from town to town plying his trade and rolling the dice. With a kind heart and lethal sword skill, he is protector of the innocent and the ruin of wicked men.
