The story centers on James Jenson, a British soldier whose family is brutally murdered by a corrupt superior officer in the Indian colony of Bengal in 1858.
Jenson escapes in the remote forests of India where he seeks refuge with the mysterious Indian mystics known as sadhus.
After years of being trained in their supernatural arts, Jenson must decide whether to use his newfound powers for inner peace and enlightenment as they are intended, or for justice against the people who murdered his family.
Warrior: Revenge of The Sadhu follows the journey of one man who barters his soul’s deliverance for his family’s honor.
