From Sogo Ishii, the director of Electric Dragon 80000v and Crazy Thunder Road
Legendary punk director Gakuryu Ishii (ex Sogo Ishii) adapts the famously “unfilmable” Ko Machida novel Punk Samurai Slash Down, telling the story of Junoshin Kake (Go Ayano), a ronin with ambitions to be a part of the Kuroae clan.
To do this, Junoshin fabricates a lie to the clan that an old religious cult is out to destroy them, so he must assist them and become a member. Slowly, his lie begins to unravel as he attempts anything to uphold his constructed scenario, which results in the old cult resurfacing and taking over the land!
