Heavenly Sword

Synopsis: Heavenly Sword is a dramatic tale of revenge that sees Nariko (Anna Torv), a fiery red-haired heroine, embark on a quest for vengeance against the invading King Bohan (Alfred Molina) and his army. Once considered the failure of a legendary prophecy, Nariko must wield a sword that was ultimately meant for another. This ancient Heavenly Sword, once belonging to a powerful deity, can never be wielded by a mortal without it slowly and inevitably killing them. For Nariko, it is a race against time to avenge her clan before her life is irreparably overtaken by the omnipotent Heavenly Sword.

Prophecies speak of a savior,

a deity born of man,

whose fate is to wield

the heavenly sword.

It is said that a free people

will always choose peace

over war.

My people have never had

that choice.

They called him the raven lord.

Some say he was mortal.

A warlord thirsty for power.

But I swear he rose from hell

to scorch the world with hatred.

All humanity would disappear

like smoke.

But when all was lost,

their salvation, their hope,

came from the heavens.

A warrior...

Mighty enough to challenge

even the raven lord.

And shining through the horror,

a weapon like no other.

When the battle ended,

the heavenly warrior

had vanished,

never to be seen again.

And so was born the legend

of our heavenly sword.

Men tore

each other's flesh apart

to wield the sword's

unearthly power.

This sword,

once a blessing upon mankind,

had become its curse.

So began the story of our clan,

a family of nomadic warriors

dutifully charged as

sole custodians of the sword,

to save man

from destroying himself.

Be wary, clan brothers,

the green witch

is known for her trickery.

Leave kai alone.

You think you can stop us?

I only need to stop you, kyo.

These fools think

you're special.

Our special failure!

The great war will come,

and we will fall...

Because of you, nariko!

The prophet said a savior

was coming, and we got you!

You're a curse upon the clan.

If I'm a curse, then you're

a fool to make me angry.

Apologize to kai.

I don't apologize to orphans.

She's not even

a member of the clan.

She's nothing but a pet.

I'm waiting.

O-okay, I...

What is all of this?

Prophet takashi, she's mad!

She attacked us for no reason!

It was them.

They attacked kai.

He had a dagger.

What dagger?

There. Itsuki has it.

Let go of me!



How dare you speak to your elder

in such a fashion?

Prophet takashi, tell him.

You saw. You know I'm telling...


You try my patience.

You are forbidden from

mixing with the warrior caste.

- But all I...

- go!

My loving father.

I was his great

and only failure.

His living shame.

Kyo was right.

I had cursed him.

Imagine if you actually

allowed her to train.

Perhaps she isn't the failure

you have always

condemned her of being.

Nevertheless, she is not

the chosen one.

Nor is she a kitten.

Get in line, kyo.

You can be next.

Oh, aren't you funny.

You try too hard

to be the son

your father wanted.

So do you.

Kai, stop it.

We do not kill our clansmen.

Kai won't kill.

Just make some blood.

I believe her.

Come on.

We should be training.

To arms! To arms!

Quickly! Get inside!

Kai, we should...

kai? Where are you?

- You're welcome.

- Thank you.

After everything I...

why did you...

no matter who we are

or what we do,

this clan is my family.

And family protects its own.


Lower your sword, daughter.

Come with me.

King bohan.

He was a boy of great destiny,

taught to lead and to win.

Bohan was to emerge

as the finest of kings.

He was trained

to fight with dignity.

But honor and goodness,

he did not possess.

Scarred with defeat,

his black heart brooded.

He dreamed of a glorious future,

but those secret hopes

were swiped away

with violence and contempt.

He vowed revenge.

And this much he knew:

His time would come.

Bohan was as malevolent

and vicious then as he is now.

Even as a child,

he thirsted for power.

But the crown wasn't enough to

appease his appetite and rage.

A king?

Bohan wanted to become a God.

And for that he needed

our heavenly sword.

Yes, daddy.

I'll get steady this time.
