Anime instalment of the cult 'Highlander' franchise. Director Yoshiaki Kawajiri pairs up with original Highlander writer David Abramowitz to create a new feature-length adventure for the sci-fi fantasy tale of ancient Scots warrior Colin McLeod (voice of Shun Oguri). MacLeod has traveled through the ages searching for fellow immortal, Marcus Octavius (Kouichi Yamadera), the man responsible for killing his lover, Moya (Yurika Hino), on the Celtic plains centuries ago. His journey has taken him to a post-apocalyptic New York in the year 2187, the city now a partly submerged ruin overshadowed by a vast monolithic fortress. Ruling what is left of the once proud metropolis, McLeod finds none other than Marcus Octavius, whose despotic plans for the future include poisoning the Big Apple's populace. MacLeod has the power to save the survivors but, driven by a blinding bloodlust, he has only one goal - to avenge the murder of Moya. After countless gory showdowns, neither immortal has managed to truly vanquish the other. Will the remnants of a once-proud New York prove to be the final battleground as these two undying warriors once again come face to face?
