After a successful heist at a Moscow casino, Lupin III uses half his gains to buy a two seater plane, only to crash land at the funeral of an older master thief and previous competitor, Mark Williams. Lupin and Jigen pay their respects, but as always, Fujiko turns up with a mission for a prize, as addressed by Williams in his will regarding Lupin! Williams has left Lupin the task of returning his stolen artifacts to their owners unnoticed, in exchange for the Trick Diamond. It is fabled that the Trick Diamond is actually the key to a much greater treasure, about which very little is known. Lupin's reversed role of returning stolen items is complicated by a revenge seeking Russian casino chief, and Inspector Zenigata's tireless pursuit. Will Lupin and his gang return the treasures and gain the Trick Diamond? Or will they be thwarted or double-crossed by friends and foes?
