A reluctant samurai must make a choice between his honor and his heart.

Set in feudal Japan, Seibei is a low ranking Samurai and a widower, with two young daughters and an aging mother to support. One day, he encounters Tomoe, a childhood friend and beautiful divorcee and the two quickly strike up a friendship.

Fearing he is too poor to make an offer of marriage to Tomoe, the humble Seibei accepts an order to kill a troublesome samurai and win back his wealth and honor- not knowing that Tomoe has made plans to marry another..

The Twilight Samurai is director Yoji Yamada's 77th feature film in his 40 plus years as a director. Nominated for Best Foreign Film at the 2004 Academy Awards The Twilight Samurai is destined to become a classic of the Asian Cinema genre.
