Veteran director Kaizo Hayashi made this post-modern samurai action adventure
saga. The film centers on Jigoku-gokuraku-maru, a samurai on the lam. One bounty
hunter hoping to collect the sizeable reward is Teppo Oyuri, a comely lass who is an
ace shot with her pearl-laden pistol. Before she can set her sights on
Jigoku-gokuraku-maru, he is attacked by a hoard of sword-wielding thugs also
hoping to collect the reward. He dispatches them with bloody aplomb. Later,
Jigoku-gokuraku-maru and Teppo Oyuri -- who has fallen for the master swordsman
in spite of herself -- ventures to Zipingu -- the Land of Gold -- in search of a magical
gold sword.
