Storyline

A native of Portuguese Mozambique, Yasuke is taken captive and brought to 16th-century Japan as a slave to Jesuit missionaries. The first black man to set foot on Japanese soil, Yasuke’s arrival arouses the interest of Oda Nobunaga, a ruthless warlord seeking to unite the fractured country under his banner. Yasuke earns Nobunaga's friendship, respect — and ultimately, the honor, swords and title of samurai.
