- In 1701 in the royal capital of Edo, Lord Asano is goaded into attacking the higher ranking Lord Kiru while on sacred ground. As a result of this grave offense, Asano is told to commit hara-kiri, his house is abolished and his properties abandoned. But 47 of Asano’s samurai retainers vow vengeance upon Lord Kiru. Carrying out this plot, however, comes at a terrible price, for they will ultimately have to take their own lives in order not to dishonor Asano’s memory. Original language title: GENROKU CHÛSHINGURA. Note: image somewhat flickery.
