Tekkonkinkreet - From the producer of Animatrix, this award-winning anime film based on the comic book by Taiyou Matsumoto (Ping Pong) is unlike anything ever seen before, a hybrid of cutting-edge 3D CGI technology and traditional Japanese animation.

When mysterious foreign entrepreneurs appear with the intention of tearing down Treasure Town and replacing it with an amusement park, it is up to the destructive Black to save the fate of the city and up to the gentle White to save Black from his own dark nature.
