A look back at an amazing, obscure early 90's Japanese samurai series that had a huge cult following in Australia in the early 2000's. It's a documentary about the show and some of the bizarre behind the scenes antics that it's creator and co-stars got up to, as well as investigating how the main star ended up in jail 20 years later. The show itself was badly acted, translated and edited, very sexist and the central character would solve crimes and kill monsters on his journey to avenge his master’s murder... Or it may be none of the above!
