Here is a short review of "Prisoners of the Ghostland" movie plot summary.
In a region in Japan devastated and quarantined years ago in an accident in which highly volatile nuclear waste was spilled after a crash between the waste transport and a prison bus, a settlement called Samurai Town is ruled by an unscrupulous Governor (Bill Moseley) who has blended elements of Japanese society (both modern-day and pre-modern) and the old American West together at his whim, and is keeping a harem of adopted "granddaughters" as his sex slaves. The outside is a wasteland known as the Ghostland, inhabited by half-crazed outcasts and victims of the irradiated environment. Just before the catastrophe, Hero (Nicolas Cage), a criminal, was imprisoned in the aftermath of a botched bank robbery where his partner Psycho (Nick Cassavetes) brutally murdered several innocent bystanders. It is later revealed that Psycho was in the prison transport which collided with the waste truck and thus set off the disaster.
One night, Bernice (Sofia Boutella), one of the "granddaughters", flees from the Governor's house with her friends Stella (Lorena Kotô) and Nanci, only to get stranded in the Ghostland. The Governor has Hero released to retrieve Bernice from the Ghostland, and outfits him with a bodysuit which is set to detonate explosive charges in case he mistreats Bernice in any way, the suit itself is tampered with, or Bernice has not been rescued within five days. When departing, Hero undertakes a parting gesture of defiance against the Governor which impresses Yasujiro (Tak Sakaguchi), the Governor's samurai bodyguard whose sister is one of the Governor's "granddaughters".
