Set in the 16th century, as rival warlords battled to control Japan. Lord Oda Nobunaga, intent on controlling Japan, is waging war against several clans when one of his vassals, Araki Murashige stages a rebellion and promptly disappears. Nobunaga assembles his other vassals including Mitsuhide and Hideyoshi, and orders them to capture the fugitive Murashige, warning “I’ll choose whoever works hardest as my successor.” With various thoughts, schemes, and traps they carry out, they’re soon brought to a crossroads in a complicated situation. All roads lead to Honno-ji temple, where fate awaits them all. Which way will their heads roll…?
