The crew of “Neko Samurai” present a funny and heartwarming Ninja movie.
 

Kagerota, a rogue ninja, is a wanted man as his clansman believes that he knows whereabouts of the scrolls which tells the mythical skills of warriors changing appearances to win battles. Kagerota is taking "Father," an overweight, golden-haired and red-nosed cat in his bag. He believes the cat is the feline form of his long-disappeared and legendary ninja father Kuze Kenzan because of the same red nose as Kenzan's.


Meanwhile, the Kiryu Clan, who is anxious to bring the scroll back, dispatches two female ninjas, Momiji and Tsubame, to nab Kagerota. Kagerota fights for making "Father" back to his human appearance and getting away from the thug ninjas…
