Several hundred years after the infamous Battle of Dannoura (1185) in a remote Japanese mountain village, tensions run high as the white clad gang of the Genji (Minamoto clan), led by Yoshitsune, and the red clad gang of the Heike (Taira clan), led by Kiyomori, brutally confront each other over rumors of hidden gold.
When a nameless drifter, burdened with a dark past but possessed of remarkable gun skills, arrives in the village, both the Genji and the Heike speculate as to which side he will join. Power struggles, betrayal, lust and love interweave, drenching the earth with blood, as the historic Taira-Minamoto War resumes in the "macaroni western" wilderness.
