Description: A virtuous governor is banished by a feudal lord to a far-off province. His wife and children are sent to live with her brother. Several years later, the wife, Tamaki (Kinuyo Tanaka), and children, Zushio and Anju, journey to his exiled land, but are tricked on the journey by a hypocritical priestess and sold into slavery and prostitution. The mother and her servant are sold to Sado. The children are sold by slave traders to a manorial estate in which slaves are brutalized, working under horrific conditions and are branded whenever they try to escape. The estate, protected under the Minister of Right, is ministrated by the eponymous Sansho (Eitarô Shindô), a bailiff (or steward). Sansho's son Taro (Akitake Kôno), the second-in-charge, is a much more humane master, and he convinces the two they must survive in the manor before they can escape to find their father.
