A collection of magical tales based upon the actual dreams of director Akira Kurosawa. This 8-part mini-series does not have a single narrative, but is rather episodic in nature. Each of the eight segments follows the adventures of a "surrogate Kurosawa" (often recognizable by his wearing Kurosawa's trademark hat) through a different dream.
