Two wounded samurai take shelter in an ancient temple, one dies while the other wakes up miraculously healed. His mysterious host explains the temple belongs to Aragami, the notorious and invincible god of battle. Tired of immortality Aragami has healed him in hopes the samurai will fight a duel with the god and kill him. Action director Kitamura builds up to the sizzling fight scene with a cleverly comedic conversation and filmed the whole thing in just one week as part of a pact he made with fellow filmmaker Yukihiko Tsutsumi
