Trailer for The Last Ronin.

It’s a legend but not a myth, the Chushingura — that famous tale of the Ako fiefdom’s 47 samurai who, to avenge their lord’s dishonour and forced suicide, plotted and executed a daring assault on the estate of his nemesis at the turn of the 18th century. Their true story, emblematic of the Bushido code of honour and Japanese sense of loyalty, discipline and sacrifice, has been adapted to print, stage and screen countless times. Having avenged their lord, their code dictated that they collectively commit seppuku, or ritual suicide. Forty-six of the ronin did so. Only one, Kichiemon Terasaka, was instructed to refrain, that he might bear witness to their bravery.
