Feudal Japan, 1543-1562. Kansuke Yamamoto is a samurai who dreams of a land that is peaceful from sea to sea. He enters the service of Takeda, the Lord of the Kai Domain. He persuades Takeda to kill the Lord of the neighboring Suwa and take his wife as a concubine. Then he persuades the widow, Princess Yu, to accept this arrangement and to give Takeda a son. He mortgages his life. He then spent years using betrayals, poetic sensibilities, military and political strategies to expand Takeda's empire, to advance Yus's son's claim to inheritance, and to prepare for the ultimate battle with the Echigo forces. Has Kansuke passed? Are his love-blinded dreams too big?
