The fates of real and imagined characters are deftly interwoven as they engage in fresh and unexpected adventures, playing out Tezukas philosophical concern with overcoming fate and the uselessness of violence. As Kapilavastu burns and its people are hunted down, and infant refugee Ananda is granted the gift of invincibility by Mara, an evil demon. Nurtured by the she devil Ananda learns to use his power to become a fearsome bandit, honing his cruelty and selfishness before he is unleashed upon the demons enemy - Buddha.
