The ronin Mokunoshin helps out on a farm while also training the owners’ son Ichisuke and falling in love with their daughter Yu. One day an older samurai appears in the village to recruit warriors for an impending civil war. With its narrative slowly descending into a feverish nightmare, KILLING deconstructs the samurai code and sharply criticizes the concept of glorified violence.
