In a not too distant future. Violence and lawlessness rule the land. In the middle, a small, neutral inn. A hub for merchants, nomads and the sinister. The last bastion of so-called peace. This peace is to be disturbed when one day the deaf samurai enters the inn. A legendary swordsman around whom many myths revolve and on whom a bounty is offered. The swodsman orders a drink, sits down and goes to sleep. A heated competition for the bounty begins. Only one can leave the inn alive.
