Summary
Set in seventeenth-century Japan, Musashi Miyamoto dreams of glory on the battlefield, but a twist of fate turns him into a fugitive, leading to salvation through the love of a woman and a priest who guides him towards the path of the samurai; Miyamoto faces hoardes of enemies, thrusting him further along the path to spiritual enlightenment; after leaving the life of a samurai to be a farmer, Miyamoto faces his nemesis one last time
