Yoshitsune was once a hero, a genius strategist who defeated the Heike. But his older brother Yoritomo regarded him as dangerous and betrayed him, and now Yoshitsune is on the run. He flees aimlessly until one day, completely lost, he meets a young woman named Tsune who can turn into a fox. He says he will grant the woman one favor if, in exchange, she will lead him and his follower Benkei through the blinding snow to her hidden village. It is a mysterious village which has developed a strange culture. There Yoshitsune and Benkei take a much-needed rest, but when they try to leave, they become lost in the snow. No matter how many times they try, they always end up back at the village. The villagers laugh and say this is Tsune's magic — it gives the village eternal refuge from the world. Meanwhile, Yoritomo is searching for the entrance to the village in order to capture Yoshitsune. Tsune appears before him and invites him to the dreamlike village as well... Will Yoshitsune be able to shake off both his pursuer Yoritomo, and the magic of Tsune, in order to return to the outside world where the cherry blossoms bloom...?
This is a Japanese-style rock fantasy of visions and spirits, where the snow and cherry blossoms entangle and dance.
