Plot.

The Daimyo rapes a woman and murders her and her husband, but even when one of his own vassals commits suicide to bring attention to the crime, the matter is quickly hushed up. Because the Daimyo is the Shogun's younger brother, he will soon be appointed to a high political position from which he could wreak even more havoc. The fate of the Shogunate hangs in the balance and a plot is hatched to kill the Daimyo. One of the most brilliant strategic minds of their generation is tasked to defend a man he despises, and the other with a small army at his disposal. A suicide mission is given to the other. They are the 13 assassins.
