Description: Two luckless peasants, Tahei and Matashichi (Minoru Chiaki and Kamatari Fujiwara) escape the aftermath of a battle. While trying to make their way home, they meet and begin to travel with General Rokurota Makabe (Toshiro Mifune). The general is trying to transport the princess of a defeated royal family and what remains of their wealth to safe territory in secret. The peasants mostly impede his mission sometimes trying to run off with the gold. They are later joined by a farmer’s daughter (Toshiko Higuchi), whom they acquire at an inn from a slave-trader, or procurer. Together, the five make an arduous and desperate trek through enemy territory, transporting a treasure of gold that the princess and the general hope to use to rebuild the princess's military to one day retake her land and rebuild her realm.
