The country of Zufu has a national treasure that is placed for safe-keeping on a floating island by the country's late king. The defense mechanism of the island is too much for Lupin, Jigen, and Goemon to handle on their own. The princess of Zufu is the only surviving member of the royal family. Zufu's current ruler, General Headhunter, who recently acquired rule over the country when he secretly pulled a coup d'etat and executed the country's king and prince, is holding her prisoner. A Zufu police agent named Olander and a million-dollar bounty placed on Lupin's head by the psychotic Headhunter caused trouble when the princess was kidnapped to get hold of the key. Lupin has to dodge bounty hunters at every turn in order to find a safe way to the treasure.
