Vash the Stampede, a gunman with a sixty billion double double
bounty on his head, travels through the wastelands of a new
planet with every bounty hunter trying their best to kill
him. As he is considered a human disaster area, because of
the damage cause to each of the towns he visits, Milly and

Vash has a mission to stop his brother Knives from his intent
