Predominantly anime, but part live-action, Palisades Tartan is proud to present Princess, a sexually graphic and brazenly violent film that takes aim at the porn industry using its own equally astonishing and taboo arsenal. This film will street September 29th in video stores across the country.
August returns home from years of missionary work after hearing about the death of his sister Christina, who – after going from greatness to the gutter as the famous porn star “The Princess” – has finally died of drug abuse. She has left behind her five year-old daughter, Mia, with a prostitute, which August, a devout clergy man, finds unacceptable. He visits the brothel to bring Mia home with him and becomes her guardian. Burdened by sorrow, guilt and unspeakable rage August goes on a rampage to avenge his sister’s death and brings her small daughter with him. The mission escalates into a brutal and violent rout as August attempts desperately to protect the only thing he holds dear – namely Mia – forcing him to make a fateful decision.
