Yang has eliminated all but one of his clan's enemies - an infant. Unwilling to kill her and unable to protect her from his own tribe, Yang takes the baby and flees to seek refuge with a friend in the American West. Unfortunately his friend has died and the town, now fallen on bad times, is inhabited only by a few eccentrics. For the child's sake, Yang decides to stay as the town's laundryman, assisted by the beautiful knife-throwing Lynne. During the town's Christmas celebration, Lynne's nemesis, 'The Colonel' and his gang, return threatening to destroy the town. This brings Yang's sword out of its sheath and the battle begins. Unfortunately this also brings forth the warriors that have been seeking Yang. This martial arts, comedic, fantasy Western with Anime elements is hard to categorise. I would suggest not trying to categorise it and let it's unique composite genre present itself.
