One part samurai revenge epic. Two parts hip-hop combat extravaganza. One part queer vampire love story. All parts badass, pulpy fun. Welcome to Soul Samurai.
In a post-apocalyptic Manhattan, young samurai Dewdrop is on a mission to avenge the death of her lover at the hands of the Long Tooth gang. But she’ll have to battle burnouts, shoguns, flashbacks, and her wise-ass B-boy sidekick just to make it across the Brooklyn Bridge. This high-energy fantasy boasts jive-talk vampires, the finest damn stage combat, a diverse and passionate cast, and the funkiest soundtrack.
