This movie brings to an end the high-octane war between Andromache of Scythia and her former lover, Noriko. Andy’s immortals were being hunted as part of a long-term game by Noriko, after she resurfaced herself from the depths of the ocean.
Andromache of Scythia and her troop of soldiers are back in this second story narrating the combat and payload of their unsure immortality. The addition of Nile to the team has given them new motives and directions as well, but when you’ve got 6,000 years of history behind your back, the past is ready to return every time with a vengeance.
