Honor demands blood!

A minor quarrel escalates into a duel. A death creates a debt of honor. The demands of honor outweigh the demands of justice, and force friends to spill each other's blood. And the need for victory requires the sacrifice of honor. 

One simple argument spawns death, madness, and a final confrontation that will leave the sandy soil soaked with blood.

  • From Berlin Film Festival Golden Bear winning director Tadashi Imai (Bushido - The Cruel Code of the Samurai)
