Because he doesn't know the identity of his father, Mifune is denied entrance to a house of nobility despite his keen swordsmanship. He grows frustrated in his attempts at becoming a great warrior and ends up joining a band of outlaws. Their plan is to assassinate the chief minister, who

wants more open relations with Western countries. The outlaws turn on Mifune, but he escapes. Fighting off palace guards, he at last gains admission to the palace he so wanted to enter. He succeeds in assassinating the minister only to discover that this man was his father all along. This

high-action Japanese film has no relationship to any of Mifune's SAMURAI films made in the late 1950s.
