This film tells the story of Princess Yuki (Yumiko Shaku), of the House of Takemikazuchi - once a force of noble guards for the Mikado elite, but now an exiled and disgraced band of assassins, willing to take on any task for the right price.
Yuki is a ruthlessly efficient member of the clan, paid by the authoritarian government to eliminate members of a rebellious insurrectionist group. But when a mysterious stranger tells Yuki the truth about her mother's death - that she was killed by a member of the House of Takemikazuchi - Yuki confronts the killer and, after a fierce battle, is forced to flee. A troubled young man named Takashi (Hideaki Ito) comes to her aid. But Takashi is wary, for he works with the rebels whom the Takemikazuchi have targeted for elimination.
Gradually, Yuki and Takashi come to terms with one another. But the threat of the Takemikazuchi looms - they will not tolerate the departure of one of their own, and they are closing in...
