Harsh Cry Of The Heron Synopsis

An attempted assassination of Kaede reveals that the forces of destiny still bear down on Takeo. While his strength and power come from the enduring love of Kaede, the blind sage's prophecy that only his son could bring death to him, haunts his thoughts. This is an epic of warfare and sacrifice, revenge, betrayals and unconquerable love.
