Returning to their lord's fortress, samurai warriors Washizu and Miki are waylaid by a spirit who predicts their futures. When the first a part of the spirit's prophecy comes true, Washizu's scheming spouse, Asaji, presses him to hurry up the rest of the spirit's prophecy through murdering his lord and usurping his area. Director Akira Kurosawa's resetting of William Shakespeare's "Macbeth" in feudal Japan is one among his maximum acclaimed films.
