As they look exactly alike, Hyota agrees to swap places, but when Ushiwakamaru dies of his illness, Hyota agrees to carry on his dream and stay in his position.
Years later, Hyota has become Minamotono Yoshitsune and with his advisors, Musashibou Benkei and Isesaburou Yoshimori, he brings peace to his lands by solving crimes and problems. A secret messenger arrives to see Yoshitsune and informs him of a coming war. This is Yoshitsune’s story in one of the biggest wars in feudal Japan.
