Oda Nobunaga pursues the unification of the entire country and fights against rivals on multiple fronts, including the Mori, Takeda, and Uesugi clans. In the midst of these battles, Oda Nobunaga’s own vassal, Araki Murashige, stages a rebellion against him and then disappears. Oda Nobunaga gathers his vassals, including Akechi Mitsuhide and Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and orders them to find Araki Murashige. He promises that the one who is successful will become his successor. Toyotomi Hideyoshi along with his younger brother Hidenaga and his military adviser Kuroda Kanbee devises a secret plan. They recruit storyteller Sorori Shinzaemon, who is a former ninja, to find Araki Murashige. Beyond the capture of Araki Murashige, Toyotomi Hideyoshi plans to take control over the country by removing Oda Nobunaga and Akechi Mitsuhide. ~~ Adapted from the novel "Kubi" (首) by Beat Takeshi (北野武).
