Synopsis of Jigokuraku

"Gabimaru the Hollow", a ninja from Iwagakure Village known for his cold demeanor, is now on death row. Tired of death and betrayal, he seeks to die. However, no method of execution seems to work on him because Gabimaru, although he does not admit it, still has a reason to live. He wants to go home and see his wife, the reason for his happiness and why his work as a murderer began to hinder him. He therefore refuses to die. Asaemon the executor, a famous murderer of criminals, notices this and gives the ninja a proposal. He wants Gabimaru to join an expedition to an island in southern Japan in search of the elixir of life, and in return he will forgive all of his crimes. However, this island is not a normal place: it is believed to be paradise.
