Feudal Japan. The entire population of a small village is wiped out by a mysterious plague. A team of ninja are sent to investigate, but they are ambushed by a monster who can turn his body into solid rock. The only survivor is the beautiful and equally deadly Kagero, the lone female ninja of the group. She is captured, and her situation seems desperate. But she is saved by Jubei, a ronin -- masterless samurai and mercenary. They part, but fate brings them together again to fight a plan which aims at overthrowing the current goverment. Manipulated by a mysterious master of the arts of stealth, they are forced to work together to fight their common enemy... and to survive.
