After a political coup fails, he is ordered to prove his innocence by finding and killing Yaichiro, a former friend, samurai and brilliant swordsman. Munezo secretly enlists the help of their former master who entrusts him with the secret of "The Hidden Blade". Now he must choose between duty and honor.
