Synopsis: Ryuhei Kitamura (Versus, Aragami) directs this hard-hitting action film about a group of young assassins trained in seclusion emerge with a mission to thwart another civil war by killing three rebellious lords. But when one of their targets turns the tables on them, it comes down to the strongest assassin, Azumi, to face an entire army.
In 19th century war-torn feudal Japan, a master samurai takes on the task of raising ten orphans and training them to be assassins. Their ruthless purpose: to do the bloody work of the state by silencing rebellious warlords. After a decade of inconceivably harsh training and discipline, Azumi and her comrades are ordered to assassinate the powerful warlords Nagamasa Asano and Kiyomasa Kato. But burdened with a cruel assignment that means killing friends and enemies alike, Azumi begins to question herself, her master's--and her country's--objectives. Still, Azumi remains determined to see her mission through to the bloody end.
