Samurai marathon

Rose, Bernard

In the late feudal era of Japan, a young ninja is operating undercover in the court of an aging lord during a peaceful era of Japan that is on the brink of change. After the lord challenges his lazy samurais to a punishing marathon to toughen them up, the ninja finds his loyalties put to the test. Facing impossible odds, this unusual band of characters is running a race to win or die.
