After nearly 100 years of war between the nations Gilgamesh and Balarant, battle-weary soldier Chirico Cuvie finds his world utterly shattered when what seems to be a straightforward mission to infiltrate an enemy base turns out to be an attack on friendly forces. Furthermore, in the confusion that ensues, he stumbles upon a strange container with a beautiful woman sleeping inside.

Haunted by the memories of this mysterious woman and the betrayal of his superiors, Chirico must now fight to discover the twisted truths lurking behind the veil of war and gain new meaning to his bitter life.
