Love Letter to Miyamoto Musashi (AT)

An orphan young boy, who aspired to be a great Samurai like his idol, Miyamoto Musashi, is trained by his grandfather. At the age of 12, the young man finds out information about his father that destroys the world he has built in his head. The young boy abandons his Samurai training to search for revenge from his childhood. He escapes his home town and shatters all the values the Samurai’s life is built on. That is until he finds the legendary Samurai Musashi. And his life will never be the same.
