Summary
Set in 18th century Japan, the film tells the story of a young lord, Asano, who travels to the capital city of Edo to assume state duties. After refusing to bribe the Grand Master of Ceremonies for teaching him official etiquette, he is goaded into drawing his sword in the Shogun's palace, a capital offense for which he is sentenced to commit harakiri suicide. This leaves the warriors of Ako as ronin, masterless samurai, with nowhere to go and no lord to serve
