STORY


After a lifetime of violence, a retired frog samurai vows explicitly never to kill again. As a result, he melts his sword into a golf club. All he wants is to be left alone to spend his remaining years peacefully on the links. Sadly, fate has other plans. The crows of the Karasu-Klan have stolen the egg of the unborn turtle prince, and one bad swing sets off a chain of events that make foster parents of him and his caddie. Pursued by enemies old and new, he sets off on a journey to return the baby to his homeland.
