About LONE WOLF AND CUB: BABY CART TO HADES

Baby Cart to Hades opens abruptly, like the turn of a manga page, and unfolds amidst idyllic countryside scenery that contrasts sharply with the violence that occurs within it. In the first act alone, swords are drawn for vengeance and for glory but also for random senseless acts, with terrible consequences. The third Lone Wolf and Cub film follows Itto Ogami and Daigoro as they continue their journey and stumble upon a crime scene involving a group of lowlife swordsmen from the watari-kashi class. Ogami bids for the freedom of a girl sold into a live of prostitution by allowing himself to be tied up and tortured in her place. And in the climactic showdown, with Ogami facing an army of 200 men, the true secret power of the “baby cart” is revealed to rain death upon their enemies.
