Japanese fantasy tale from the director of 'Akira'. Ginko (Jo Odagiri), is a mushishi (bug master), a gifted healer who manipulates the mushi, small supernatural bugs, in touch with the essence of life and death. Whilst travelling through pre-modern Japan he meets the beautiful Tanyu (Yu Aoi), who records the history of the mushi by locking them into scrolls. When the mushi manage to escape from the scrolls and attack Tanyu, Ginko has to not only save Tanyu, but also preserve the last remnants of a vanishing race.
