Lavish anti-war actioner racks up a sky-high body count…Ayase plays Lily with fiery panache.” – Japan Times

The year is 1924. Yuri, an ex-assassin with 57 kills, has gone underground and runs a small bar. There, she encounters Shinta, an orphan whose family was murdered. He holds the key to a large sum of money reported missing by the Imperial Japanese Army. Yuri must re-activate her skills as an assassin to protect Shinta and stop the ruthless general who wants the money to accelerate his imperialist ambitions. Soon, there are 1,000 soldiers in pursuit! A stylish period thriller with impressively choreographed action sequences, an all-star cast and a charismatic lead performance from Haruka Ayase.
