Set in Ancient Japan, two young men, separated by the nearly impassable boundaries of class and station, come together in a powerful liaison of sexual exploration and passion. The sensibility of the tale is lushly romantic, with the delicate restraint of a Japanese ink painting on silk. This is an at times tender, at times incendiary love story between men who dare to defy convention as they fulfill their romantic destiny.
