Bartok watches over his estate, a vassal kingdom to a great empire. Protecting the Bartok clan is Commander Raiden and his elite soldiers, who also serve Bartok. Raiden is surprised when Bartok tells him he is to be his heir, and gives him a sword. The empire has become corrupt and the evil minister, Geza Mott, humiliates Bartok by beating him with a stick for failing to provide an adequate bribe, until Bartok retaliates — which is treason against the crown. Bartok is put to trial where he speaks openly of his disdain for what honour has become in the empire. He is sentenced to death and Raiden is ordered to execute his own master. Bartok's estate is divided and the Bartok clan is disbanded. Geza Mott suspects Raiden will demand vengeance, and has his trusted warrior, Ito, watch Raiden to ensure there is no possibility of revenge.

Sous le règne du huitième shogunat des Tokugawa, le domaine de Yunagaya, dans la région de Tohoku, est un petit fief dont le daimyo est Masaatsu Naito. Le daimyo reçoit l'ordre d'exécuter le Sankin-kotai dans les 5 jours . Le Sankin-kotai est une coutume qui exige que le daimyo du fief rende hommage au shogun à Edo sous peine de represailles. Malheureusement, le temps nécessaire à Masaatsu Naito pour faire le trajet est de 8 jours. Cet ordre est émis parce qu'un haut fonctionnaire du gouvernement veut s'accaparer la mine d'or présente sur le fief. De plus, les dépenses pour Sankin-kotai sont élevées et le domaine est si petit qu'il semble impossible à compléter. Néanmoins, Masaatsu Naito commence une opération inattendue pour achever Sankin-kotai en 5 jours.
