Based on the best-selling novel by James Clavell, Shogun charts the collision of two ambitious men from different worlds and a mysterious female samurai.

These characters are John Blackthorne (Jarvis), a risk-taking English sailor who ends up shipwrecked in Japan, a land whose unfamiliar culture ultimately will redefine him; Lord Toranaga (Sanada), a shrewd, powerful daimyo, at odds with his own dangerous, political rivals; and Lady Mariko (Sawai), a woman with invaluable skills, but with dishonourable family ties, who must prove her value and allegiance.
