There is no American equivalent to the story of the 47 Ronin. It is a story so famed and honored in Japan that it has its own word in the language, Chushingara. It has been made into plays, an opera and before this film, six different movies. The basic events in the story actually took place in Japan at the beginning of the 18th Century.
