White and Black are two orphans who,strike terror in the streets of Takara, the 'treasure' city. These two kids nicknamed 'Cats' for their agility are racketeers bandits, yakuzas and religious fanatics. Yet they are quite different. Black is a harsh fanatic whereas White is innocent and dreamy. Everything changes when a powerful yakuza decides to eliminate them and shape the city in his own way. However, the worse danger for the two brothers might be the inner devil threatening to crush their souls.

Tekkonkinkreet is the adaptation of Taiyo Matsumoto's manga Tekkon kinkreet.

This is the first American animation feature film in Japan. It deals with brotherhood, lost love and human kindness in a modern corrupted society. This harsh elegy of our ever-changing times is also a visual achievement, and a story which echoes in every one. The title, a pun on Japanese words for 'concrete', 'steel' and 'muscle', brings evocative visions of steel and concrete cities fighting against the power of imagination.
