Synopsis: Akira Kurosawa’s first color film is dismissed by critics. The reknowned director of “Rashomon”, “Seven Samurai” and “The Hidden Fortress” (on which “Star Wars” is based), is shunted for funding and chooses suicide. When Akira was seventeen, his older brother, a narrator of silent Japanese films committed suicide when sound destroyed his career. He was twenty-three. Akira arrives in Meido, Japanese Hell, where his fate is to be determined when he has paid for all his sins. He is desperate to find his brother; he would understand. But he is paired with Toshiro Mifune, with whom he had a falling out after making sixteen successful films together. They must find a way to get through the three gates of hell in order to reach the Pureland/Redemption.
