What is the meaning of life if you cannot seek vengeance?
Manji was a samurai bound in service to an evil master. When he chose humanity over duty and butchered his lord, he was to kill 100 honest men who made the opposite choice. At this point, when he had no future but death, he was granted eternal life by an old mystic.
But tragedy strikes Manji yet again, and he is driven to end his curse. . . and seek the gift of death.
