When a father passes on the traditional family sword to one of his two adopted sons, the other--in a fit of jealous rage--joins a yakuza drug smuggling mob.

Description by Warner Home Video:
Raised from birth by a Samurai Master, two stepbrothers are torn apart by jealousy and rage when the family's sacred Samurai sword is bestowed upon the adopted son. When the two are played by David Bradley and - in his dynamic movie debut - Mark Dacascos, only one result is possible: awesome action.
Vowing revenge, Kenjiro (Dacascos) becomes a Yakuza gangster drawn to the dangerous world of "live blade" fighting. The other son Drew (Bradley) becomes a journalist and travels halfway around the world to investigate the bizarre death of a fellow reporter - a search leading him into the Yakuza underworld' and into the sights of his murderous brother. American Samurai is your ticket to razor-edged excitement!
