    Synopsis:
    Based on the comic book by Taiyou Matsumoto (Ping Pong), the title is a play on the Japanese words for "concrete", "steel", and "muscle". Directed by Michael Arias, dynamic Tekkonkinkreet combines the imaginative fantasy and action elements of the best in Japanese animation with a dark and modern children's story.

    Black and White are two orphans who roam the streets of Treasure Town, beating down any thug or yakuza who gets in their way. When mysterious foreign entrepreneurs appear with the intention of tearing down Treasure Town and replacing it with an amusement park, Black and White face their greatest adversaries yet. 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.
