FULL SYNOPSIS

Maverick Japanese director [[Performer~P235203~Takashi Miike~takashimiike]] re-teams with longtime writing partner [[Performer~P240019~Masa Nakamura~masanakamura]] ([[Feature~V313745~Andromedia~andromedia]], [[Feature~V162448~The Bird People of China~thebirdpeopleinchina]]) for this Western inspired by [[Performer~P85883~Sergio Corbucci~sergiocorbucci]]'s violent 1966 classic [[Feature~V14098~Django~django]]. It's been hundreds of years since the Battle of Dannoura, yet the Genji and Heiki clans are still feuding. In this poor mountain town, there is rumored to be a great hidden treasure. Genji gang leader Yoshitsune is sure that his white-clad warriors will find the treasure first, but Kiyomori and his red-clothed Heike gang aren't about to walk away empty-handed. When a mysterious lone gunman with an incredibly fast trigger finger rolls into town, everyone wonders which gang he will join. As betrayal, deception, and cold-blooded murder become commonplace, the silence of this once-quiet mountain town will be broken by the piercing echo of gunfire and the air will become dense with the smell of death. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
