    Legendary punk director Gakuryu Ishii (Sogo Ishii) adapts the famously “unfilmable” Kou Machida novel Punk Samurai Slash Down, telling the story of Junoshin Kake (Go Ayano), a ronin samurai with ambitions to be a part of the Kuroae clan.

    In search of employment and a permanent position and having committed murder the ronin Kake Junoshin tells the Kuroae clan that a religious cult is aiming for their destruction. This gets him in, but he is soon disproved and arrested. Given the death sentence and awaiting death he has to be quick on his feet and figure out a way to get himself out of the hole. Then the resurrection occurs.
