Synopsis

Former samurai and widower Jubei (Ken Watanabe) now scrabbles a living as a poor farmer trying to feed his two children. His old friend Kingo (Akira Emoto) arrives offering him a chance to make some money by killing two thugs who slashed the face of a young prostitute (Shiori Kutsuna) in the town of Washiro. However, Jubei has renounced violence and only a bad harvest pushes him into accepting the offer. Japanese director Sang-il Lee's remake of the Clint Eastwood classic 1992 Western of the same name.
