"Two samurais face one another on a battlefield ravaged by war. Absorbed by their pride, they clash in a duel fuelled by deep emotions."

AA: An impressive vignette in Japanese style. The duel of the samurais is about cruelty and tenderness, love and death. Visually exquisite. A refined painterly look via computer animation.
