With the most recent local release of director Ross Boyask’s fantasy action thriller, Warrioress, actress, producer, martial artist and action auteur Cecily Fay has become a growing beacon for fans of the genre hailing from the UK. The film was largely produced and shot on a zero budget and completed only through faith and boundless effort, and for this, the film has become a critical success among followers as the wheels began spinning for Fay‘s next stellar endeavor in martial arts action cinema, Babes With Blades: Flower Of Sarnia.
The story is set on the dark streets of the planet Draiga, against the backdrop of enormous rusting steel smelting machinery, neon lit walkways and vast industrial halls. Azura is the last of the Sarnians who were once a fearsome Warrior race. Her home world, once a beautiful haven, is now a lifeless husk after the Visray Empire destroyed it when she was a child, and captured her and her friend Tallarin.
Azura manages to escape and survives to adulthood on the streets of the human colony on Draiga. Sef, the boss of the notorious slave ring, finally captures her and makes her fight in the death matches in the Gladiatorial ring. Meanwhile, a group of human freedom fighters form a resistance to the occupying Visray and seek to try and protect their families from the oppressive and cruel rule of the Visray Section Commander Sorrentine.
The fate of the humans on Draiga becomes entwined with that of the last Sarnian, Azura.
