Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for FLOWER AND SWORD / 花戦さ at Dendy Canberra


Is the flower indeed mightier than the sword?

Senko Ikenobo, a joyful young monk, shows virtuoso talent with his astonishingly beautiful but unusual ikebana (flower arrangements). When the free-spirited Senko is promoted to head monk, he continues to use ikebana to inspire the community. Whilst Japan is enjoying a period of peace and flourishing culture and arts, tensions arise when the new regent Hideyoshi Toyotomi metes out severe punishments. It is up to Senko to confront Toyotomi—armed only with flowers and Buddhist teachings.
