In 1865 in Kyoto, the Shogunate is crumbling and Japanese politics are turbulent. Two new recruits join a strict samurai academy--the rugged Tashiro (Asano) and a delicate teenager named Kano (Matsuda). Kano soon proves his worth to the militia commander, Kondo (Sai), and Captain Hijikata (Kitano) but his androgynous beauty begins to cause dissension--leading Kondo to forbid any relations between his men. Japanese with subtitles.
