A baffling man, Suba, finds himself a line of work at a fencing institute, and as he learns the method of the understudies, the school, and its maestro, they discover that there’s something else to him besides what might be expected. He gains (or recaptures?) his fencing abilities and his theory of showing conflicts with the maestro’s. As they are tossed into struggle, Suba and the maestro’s past have all the earmarks of being connected. Also the goal of their secretive relationship might be a duel to the death.
