  • About

    In the 15th and 16th centuries, Japan was ravaged by a period of tumultuous civil wars that saw the rise and fall of numerous warlords. Here, the ambitious general Akechi Mitsuhide is ambushed by group of rebellious peasants. Mitsuhide has declared himself ‘shogun’ after assassinating Oda Nobunaga. However, his glory was short-lived, as his troupe was defeated by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Nobunaga’s general. Mitsuhide fled, only to be captured and killed by bounty hunters.
