Ten centuries ago, before the Age of Obedience, free dogs roamed at liberty, marking their territory. Seeking to extend its dominion, the cat-loving Kobayashi Dynasty declared war and descended in force upon the unwary four-legged beasts. On the eve...
Near the beginning of the film, a pack of white dogs walk up to a bag of garbage that was dumped in front of them before being confronted by Chief's pack.

The film opens with a taiko drum performance by three boys.
