Description

Join Indievents and Club David, Wednesday, August 23, for the South Dakota Premiere of
TATARA SAMURAI.

Gosuke, born in the village of Tatara, has spend his youth being groomed to become the next murage, the highest qualified blacksmith in the village. However, after vicious raids on his village, Gosuke decides he must leave his home and become a samurai to protect his people. A visiting merchant introduces him to Yohei, who promises glory and guidance as he invites Gosuke to join the honored Oda Army. Terrified in face of real battle, Gosuke begins to lose confidence in his ability to protect Tatara as a samurai and flees.

After returning to Tatara, Gosuke again meets with Yohei, who convinces him to exchange swords, relics of the past, with guns, the new technology, if they have any hope of surviving the raids. Shinpei, Gosuke’s childhood friend, tries to warn him of the dangers of guns, only to be branded as a traitor by Yohei.

Shortly after, Yohei coldly shoots Shinnosuke, the leader of the region. Gosuke, realizing the grave mistake he has made in trusting Yohei, uses a tatara steel sword to slice Yohei’s gun in half. After all the destruction, Gosuke realizes that the true essence of a samurai – honor and compassion – was within him all along, and that as a murage he can do more for Tatara than he could ever do by wielding a weapon.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!
