Full Synopsis

In a different world and time, humans live simpler lives, but are plagued with complicated and unstoppable forces. These are humanoid mutants with godly powers, known among the common folk as ‘sorcerers’ or ‘dragons’. They live long and maintain their lifespans through slaughtering humans in great masses and absorbing their life essences. One sorcerer, known as the ‘The Devourer’ a.k.a the ‘Black Dragon’, is the most feared and has plagued humanity for decades.

Two men, both plagued by the curse of the Sorcerers, share a bonfire in the middle of nowhere after having agreed to further each other’s causes. An ‘Old Man’, who lost his family to the wrath of a Sorcerer, and a mysterious, revenge driven ‘Gunslinger’ who’s been after an impossible enemy all his life. As they exchange words that night, to the Old Man’s surprise, the Gunslinger reveals his story, as well as his true nature.
