Ten representatives are chosen to fight to the death for the possession of a scroll. The prize is the introduction of the respective son into the Japanese government, and the support of the Tokugawa government for the winning clan.

In this fight to the bitter end, Friend, foe and lovers alike all become the bitterest of enemies in this battle for supremacy.
