Amidst a mythically-depicted medieval Japan, a court astrologer foretells a great disturbance that threatens to split the realm in two. When his treacherous wife conspires to have the astrologer killed, a pack of ancient fox spirits may be the key in bringing peace to the fractured nation.
Cloaked like its characters in a rich red hue, Tomu Uchida’s stunning, supernatural fantasy draws from the theatrical worlds of kabuki and bunraku for its dreamlike tale of mistaken identities and shape-shifting spirits. This expressionistic marvel even merges animation into its folkloric tableaux.
