About

A young girl struggles to perfect her new found passion, swordfighting. She discovers her role model when a band of Montessori school children invite her to a demonstration given by a legendary Hollywood master. After intense training, the children's adroit sword play awakens their competitive instincts. They rebel against their teacher, and a harrowing duel ensues. The heroine faces internal turmoil, when the Montessori gang forces her to choose between her master's path and their growing power. The film combines optically printed and hand processed original and appropriated imagery.
