The story is set in the 16th century. The powerful ruler of Japan, Oda Nobunaka, is assasinated, leaving the warlord Toyotomi Hideyoshi (Eiji Okuda) in the perfect position to usurp power. Amidst the chaos, a bandit named Goemon (Yosuke Eguchi) becomes a hero to commoners by stealing from the rich and giving to the poor masses.
During one of his robberies, he steals a box from a merchant and gives it away to a poor child on the street (Arashi Fukasawa). However, the box was far more important than Goemon realized, and Toyotomi’s best men are soon tasked with finding him and the box.
