Two ancient traditions collide in the heart of a modern day Japanese city when an unwary American businessman witnesses the execution of a beautiful Japanese woman by a infamous ninja cult. Paul Racine (Christopher Lambert) alone and lonely in a foreign land meets Kirina (Joan Chen) in the bar of his hotel. Hoping for a little company for the evening he strikes up a conversation with her which eventually leads to a night on the town and ends in Kirina hotel room for a fleeting moment of passion. Just as unexpectedly as the evening began it abruptly ends when Kirina turns somber and introspective just before asking Paul to leave. Somewhat bewildered he reluctantly grants her request all the while wondering what went wrong. What Paul didn't know was Kirina had a good reason for asking him to leave. She is slated to be executed that very night. It was time to prepare herself for the arrival of the ninja assassins. As the assassination is being carried out Paul unexpectedly walks back into Kirina's room and witnesses her murder. Miraculously he survives his wounds and the posionous substance administered to the tips of the ninjas weapons, awakening days later in a hospital bed with a fantastic story that nobody seems to believe. According to the authorities ninjas were a part of Japan's past. They no longer exist in modern day Japan. While the romantic elements are quite subdued they are touching nonetheless. The enchanting Yoko Shimada (Shogun) plays the part of Mieko, Takeda's devoted wife. Despite her love for her husband she can only watch him slip away as he becomes increasingly obsessed with his mission to kill Kinjo and destroy the ninja clan. While she sees strength and bravery in the old ways as embodied in her warrior husband she inwardly longs for a more gentle and forgiving way of life that she sees lived out in Paul. There are no romantic feelings expressed between Paul and Mieko but I think the ending implicitly indicates something more between them may exist.
