It’s no holds barred when famed Boss Jirocho of Shimizu squares off against rival bosses who have conspired against him in their effort to take over his territory along the Tokaido Road.
With an all-star cast led by Kataoka Chiezo and Ichikawa Utaemon this violent tale of the traveling gamblers and their brutal wars was ripped from the pages of Japanese history.
The alliance of Jirocho and Nikichi must stand tall against all odds when the uncle of one of the Shimizu gang’s relatives is murdered and his wife abducted by a jilted suitor who belongs the Takei gang and the Shimizu gang searches far and wide for him. The action heats up when fire rips through a farmer’s home, breaking Jirocho’s orders to not harm the common folks.
