Set in the heart of 19th century Edo, the story concerns proud Kabuki actor Yukinojo, an oyama, (or onnagata, an actor of female roles in the all-male world of kabuki) on tour to the capital as part of a visiting troop from Osaka. After espying from the stage the magistrate who indirectly caused the death of his parents many years before, he sets in motion a plan to take revenge using all the skills of guile and persuasion of his craft, not only against the magistrate Sansai Dobe himself, but also Dobe’s two merchant associates Kawaguchiya and Hiromiya. To this end, Yukinojo’s plan is doubly assisted when Dobe’s daughter, Namiji, falls in love with him after seeing him on stage…
