Masterless samurai Zatoichi comes to a village that is on the brink of gang war. Always on the run and looking for the next dice game, a blind masseur and swordsman soon finds himself a wanted man in town when he protects his landlord's nephew in a slaughter at the makeshift casino. At the same time, two geishas come to town to seek revenge for the deaths of their family ten years previously. As they begin to hunt down those responsible, Zatoichi and the geishas find themselves targets in a final bloody showdown...

Resplendent with Takeshi Kitano's trademark blend of skewed social probing, comedy and violence, the famous Japanese Zatoichi character gets a new spin, helping the film secure four awards at the Venice film festival in addition to the People's Choice award in Toronto.
