Plot

A bad man ("Akuto") wants to sleep with a woman (Kyōko Kishida). He spies on her with the help of Jiju (Nobuko Otowa). Then the woman's husband Rokuro decides to leave the court. He initially tells his wife to stay behind. The bad guy intends to sleep with the woman but she goes with her husband. Jiju leaves with them. The bad man orders his soldiers to follow them, and kill everyone except the woman. The bad man's soldiers catch up with them. One by one each of them combats the soldiers and dies, until finally only Rokuro is left. He fights bravely but is overwhelmed and finally dies.

A servant of Rokuro (Taiji Tonoyama) kills the wife because she cannot bring herself to commit suicide. Finally Jiju brings the head of the woman back to the court of the bad man. She holds up the head and starts laughing. The severed head smiles.
