In the Nara Era, during the 8th century, a Buddhist monk trains for years to develop extraordinary powers, including a limited power over death. After curing the Queen of a serious illness which has proved beyond all physicians, she makes him her closest adviser. Suspecting the monk of ulterior motives the Prime Minister attempts to have him assassinated. When that fails he plots a coup to replace the Queen with the Crown Prince, whom he believes he can control. The story is based on the lives of Empress Koken (the Mikado) and Dokyo, the Buddhist monk she made Grand Minister.
