A provincial warlord who has seized power after success in battle is our titular 'scoundrel'. His court lady is one of those fallen down from her days in the imperial court and he intimidates her to help him seduce another ex-court woman now married to a smaller lord. She is a great beauty and his lust for her consumes him. However, true love cannot be corrupted by power and lust. The resulting tragedy unfolds as the wheel of dharma turns.
