Ghost Dog is a mafia hit man who communicates via carrier pigeon and lives by following the way of the samurai. When betrayed by the man he spends his life protecting, Ghost Dog must decide whether to stay true to the ancient code or retaliate against his master. Featuring a score by RZA, the film presents a unique cultural mash-up as contradictory and distinct as the character of Ghost Dog himself.
