Straight out of Ireland comes what could be an unexpected martial arts gem. The Cup of Tears is the directorial debut of Gary Shore and features ancient samurai empires battling it out in a post-apocalyptic future. Need I say more? Probably.
This is the official synopsis.
Cup Of Tears follows a scorned geisha who creates a magical cup made of tears that causes any man who drinks from it to fall into a permanent sleep. One night the cup is stolen, setting off a chain of events that threatens civil war amongst the clans. Taro, a gifted samurai, sets out to find the cup and one who can break the spell.
