He was Ogami Itto, falsely accused of treason by the evil Yagyu clan, stripped of his position, and his wife murdered by Yagyu assassins.
He was Ogami Itto, a father who gave his infant son a terrible choice between a beautiful red ball and a sword. To choose the ball meant to join his mother in the void. To choose the sword meant to join his father, now a ronin (a samurai without a master), in a blood soaked journey that must end in revenge and death.
Ogami and his son are no more. Through the countryside of Japan now stalks The Lone Wolf and Cub.
Color, stereo, English subtitles, 83 minutes, 1972, letterboxed, (not rated but contains nudity and violence).
