The story of Lone Wolf and Cub! Tomisaburo Wakayama stars as Lone Wolf, “the greatest samurai in the empire.” When he is betrayed and his wife murdered by the shogun’s ninjas, he takes his young son on "the road to hell" and seeks vengeance. Roaming the countryside, they face off with countless ninjas and assassins, and are ultimately led to a confrontation with the Masters of Death, three of the fiercest killers in the history of cinema. This movie is action-packed, with blood geyser arterial showers at every turn. As the tagline states: "Meet the greatest team in the history of mass slaughter!"
