Part Three of the Musashi Miyamoto trilogy finds him reflecting on his place in the world after winning sixty duels and becoming the stuff of legend across Japan. His young enemy, Kojiro, continues to pursue him, however. While Musashi regrets the death he has caused during his travels and intends to become a farmer, Kojiro thirsts for more and learns the way of the Shogun. The two enemies finally get the chance to meet and settle their score on the small island of Ganryu.
On Ganryu Island, the samurai master meets his mortal enemy in a breathtaking battle of swords and fists.
