Izo Okada, a masterless samurai of less than ronin rank, desperately seeks a way out of his financial straits. He allies himself with the Tosa clan under the ruthless leader Takechi and imagines that he has come up in the world. But Takechi makes of Izo a killer and a puppet, and only when it appears too late does Izo realize how far he has fallen.
