Released worldwide in 1992, Unforgiven, starring and directed by Clint Eastwood, was hailed by critics as a cinematic masterpiece. It was nominated for nine Oscars and bought home four, including Best Picture and Best Director.

Inspired by the film, Korean-Japanese filmmaker Lee Sang-il presents Yurusarezarumono, a story set in Japan, during the same period as the original film, with globally renowned Japanese actor Ken Watanabe in the lead role, a felix of the Tokugawa Shogunate. 

The story takes place at the dawn of the Meiji Era in 1880, set in Ezo (now Hokkaido), the northernmost island of Japan. After the fall of the Shogunate, Jubei fought in a series of battles, then vanished.

More than ten years have passed. Poverty leads Jubei to abandon his resolve to bury his sword. Once again, he finds himself ensnared in a life of violence. With his former comrade-in-arms, he confronts hypocrites who profess to represent justice.
