Satoh Takeru plays a samurai again after the Rurouni Kenshin series in Samurai Marathon! Directed by British filmmaker Bernard Rose (Immortal Beloved), the period action drama is set in the late Edo period and based on a novel by Samurai Hustle series writer Dobashi Akihiro.

Satoh Takeru is joined in the Samurai Marathon by the all-star cast of Komatsu Nana, Moriyama Mirai, Sometani Shota, Aoki Munetaka. Takenaka Naoto, Toyokawa Etsushi and Hasegawa Hiroki. The film also features costume design by Wada Emi and music by Philip Glass.
In 1853, U.S. Commodore Matthew Perry arrives on Japan's shores to compel the isolated country to open its ports. Lord Itakura (Hasegawa Hiroki), who is dissatisfied with the shogunate and the foreign invaders, decides to train warriors by holding a long-distance marathon that extends around 58km. He will fulfill any wish for the winner. The prize attracts men of all walks to the race: a commoner (Sometani Shota) who wants to raise his status, a retired samurai (Takenaka Naoto) who wants to prove his worth, a retainer (Moriyama Mirai) who wants to marry the princess (Komatsu Nana), and even the princess herself in male guise. Among the contenders, there is also a spy for the central Edo government, Karasawa Jinnai (Satoh Takeru). When the government mistakes the marathon as an act of treason by Itakura and dispatches assassins, Karasawa must run faster than everyone to stop the crisis.
