Synopsis and Plot Summary

Asura represents the realm of desire and the movie seeks to put its own interpretation as it tells a legendary adventure revolving around divine beings and humans.

The core concept for Asura is born out of the East Asian beliefs surrounding the six great divisions in the wheel of karma. Life does not end as reincarnation occurs within the different realms. The ideology came from India thousands of years ago and has long been integrated into Chinese culture.
