A samurai, Magobei, returns to face the clan he abandoned when he learns that they intend to instigate another massacre akin to the earlier one that caused him to resign his position. Protecting the last survivor of that massacre, a woman called "Taken by the Gods" Oriha, Magobei absorbs a truly phenomenal amount of punishment before taking down his brother-in-law, the clan leader. One of cinema's truly epic sword duels.
