Description Following a disastrous battle at Uji River, the beautiful Tomoe Gozen, right, is among the handful of survivors of the Genji army, led by her lover Yoshinaka. But Yoshinaka (far left) will not allow Tomoe to continue to fight. "How ashamed I would be," he tells her, "if people said that Yoshinaka was accompanied by a woman in his last fight." Next to him is his foster brother Imai no Shiro Kanehira.
