Unfortunately, things are never that easy for the blind man, as he becomes entangled in in a struggle to save not only these two, but also the lives of the people they come across. When the situation worsens, Zatoichi may discover that his greatest enemy is not the men sent to kill the party, but Wang Kang and a lack of a common language between the two of them.
