Thirteen Japanese assassins combine forces for a suicide mission to eliminate a nefarious feudal lord.

Naritsu Matsudaira, a Lord with a fast-rising political portfolio in feudal Japan, rapes and murders as he sees fit to impose his sadistic will on his subjects. Summoned to do something about the threat Matsudaira poses following the Namiya clan leader's seppuku as an act of protest, samurai Shinzaemon Shimada agrees to kill the vicious Lord, assembling a team of cunning assassins to eliminate the man before he can further jeopardize Japan's stability and continued existence.
