Synopsis:
Since the death of his wife, Seibei's main concern is for his family. Invitations for drinks with fellow workers are refused in favour of getting home, and Seibei earns the nickname 'Twilight Samurai'. Soon, a chance meeting with an old friend brings news of a lost childhood love, and a reunion makes an emotional impact upon both Seibei and his two daughters. But the woman is still married, and Seibei is forced to defend her honour by fighting the overbearing husband. As news of his fighting skills travels, Seibei is ordered by the ruling clan to serve as a Samurai in a matter of great importance.
Stylish, moving and evocative, The Twilight Samurai tells the tale of a low-ranking retainer whose struggle to keep his family, and maintain his honour without resorting to the violence he denounces, is tested at every level.
