Shimura Kingo is a samurai retainer whose lord Ii Naosuke is assassinated during the Sakuradamon incident. Instead of allowing himself to commit seppuku (ritual suicide) after the loss of his lord, he goes on a mission to exact vengeance against the perpetrators. Unable to end his own life until his mission is completed, he spends the next 13 years tracking down his lord’s killers until he finally finds the last assassin who had since gone into hiding and changed his name.
