Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi Challenged is the seventeenth installment in the Zatoichi series. The story is set in Japan in the Edo period and follows Zatoichi (Shintaro Katsu), a blind masseur and gambler. But underneath his harmless and frail exterior, Zatoichi is actually a master swordsman who is dedicated to enforcing justice and protecting the poor and needy. The story continues from where the previous titles left off and the hero finds himself in yet another dangerous situation. Tired from the long journey, he takes refuge in a nearby inn and ends up sharing a room with a sick woman and her child. The woman's condition takes a turn for the worse and she dies in Zatoichi's arms. To honor her final wish, he decides to deliver her infant to its father. After successfully meeting the father, Zatoichi finds out that the entire area has been oppressed by local gangsters who have forced the villagers to work for them. With his trusty sword in hand, the blind hero must face untold danger in his new quest to help the villagers.
