On the pretence of a business trip, Japanese multi-millionaire Yasujiro Endo journeys to the African nation of Imtazi. In reality, Endo is on a personal mission - a quest to find the truth about a Samurai ancestor who disappeared in Africa two centuries ago and perhaps the true spirit of the Samurai he feels lies deep within himself. Endo's search takes him on Safari deep into the wilds of Africa led by the mercenary Johhny Congo and his girlfriend Caro. As the journey continues so it becomes more dangerous as they find themselves kidnapped by rebel guerilla. It soon becomes apparent that the kidnapping is really only a smokescreen for a covert arms deal where the only bargains that can be struck are with terrorists. "The Last Samurai" is an action-adventure film in which the heroes face a danger within themselves that is at least as great as the African wilderness; Endo and Johnny confront their inner selves and both discover that their true nature is that of the Samurai.
