Shortly after the earthquake of Kanto, and for the sole purpose of expanding their territory and gaining more power, the Otero clan has arranged a marriage of convenience between Orin, the chief's daughter and the son of Yamana clan. Orin disagrees with this pre-arranged commitment as she's in love with Shinjiro, a member of her fathers clan. Whilst traveling to the marriage ceremony the Otero clan is attacked by members of the Kotoku clan. Shinjiro single-handedly routes the attackers and flees with Orin, causing the wrath of the Yamana clan, who send their best men to catch the traitor.
