Short Synopsis
The film, ‘Hidden Blade’ is set in 1861, a time when Japan was facing revolutionary changes. The once upstanding samurai class is facing the loss of their social status and economic securities. Katagiri is a low level samurai in a remote country town. His family lost their position when his father was forced to commit suicide for the mistakes of someone else. Katagiri has slowly watched as his family’s fortune and land slipped away. Katagiri longs for happiness that always seems just out of his grasp due to the social constraints that are placed on him.
