In turn-of-the-twentieth-century Japan, a young woman (Meiko Kaji) has been trained since birth to exact bloody vengeance on those who abducted and raped her mother and murdered her mother's family.
- Director Toshiya Fujita is best known for this film and its sequel, Lady Snowblood 2: Love Song of Vengeance. However, they were actually atypical of his work. In Japan he was known for his dramas and softcore "pink films".
- If some of Lady Snowblood's imagery seems familiar, that might be because it had a major influence on Kill Bill.
