Heaven Kogo (Jamie Chung) is a sheltered Japanese girl set up for an arranged marriage to Teddy in San Francisco. She's adopted but her father Tasuke still offers her the family sword after her brother has gone. The wedding is broken up by attacking ninjas. Her brother returns to rescue her but is killed in the process while her father is shot. She doesn't trust anyone especially suspicious underling Sato. She escapes finding her way to a sorority costume party. She is befriended by Cheryl (Saige Thompson) and Otto (Kyle Labine). She finds help from her brother's friend Jake Stanton (Brendan Fehr). There is also mysterious federal agent Severin. The family is caught in a web of criminal activity by the Yakuza. Heaven starts to fall for Jake when his ex Karen (Stacy Keibler) shows up.
There is a magic in all the samurai and ninja fights that is missing. The show needs to decide how comic book to take this. It is not enough and the budget is not big enough either. The show needs to be bigger. The acting is not the best although Saige has the loud best friend character down pat. This is generally a slightly inferior product.
