When the powerful Lord Takeda&;s soldiers sweep across the countryside, killing and plundering, they spare the boy Taro&;s life and take him along with them. Taro becomes a servant in the household of the noble Lord Akiyama, where he meets Togan, a cook, who teaches Taro and makes his new life bearable. But when Togan is murdered, Taro&;s life takes a new direction: He will become a samurai, and redeem the family legacy that has been stolen from him.
