As the bandits survey and approach a certain village, their leader decides to spare the village since they had once raided it. He tells them to spare it until the harvest is over. As they make their plans, one of the hidden farmers hears them and runs to the village elder and a miller Gisaku for advice.
When one Samurai is met, he goes to collect others to help the village. They decide that they will train the whole village how to fight and in return, they will be given three meals in a day. When they arrive at the village, they find that all the people are indoors, and they call this a sign of disrespect. One of them rings the village alarm bell and all of them get out of their houses.

The two groups manage to overcome challenges among themselves and as they get along, we see episodes of love, lust, and patriotism.
