Envious of the happy lives of the warrior Tahiro and his family, evil sorcerer Karura steals the beauty of Tahiro’s wife and kidnaps their son Aki and transforms him into a dragon. Tahiro, with the help of Master Tengu, embarks on a long journey to the Underworld to rescue his son. On his journey, he comes across with a magical sword which helps him overcome the demons he encounters and helps him rescue his son. The performance captures the zeitgeist with its almost human-sized puppets, exotic music and combination of shadow and acting together.
