This final film will be ending a trilogy adapting the final Fate/stay night arc left to be adapted after the original Fate anime and Unlimited Blade Works adaptations, and the official website describes it as such, "Mages and Heroic Spirits work together in the battles of the Holy Grail War...a fight for an omnipotent wish-granting container called the Holy Grail. However, this war has become horribly twisted. A young woman named Sakura Matou, with the sins she has committed, drowns in the murky darkness. A young man named Shirou Emiya, who vowed to protect Sakura, works together with Rin Tohsaka and throws himself into the raging battle to put a stop to the Holy Grail War.0comments
Illyasviel von Einzbern, as one of the few who knows the truth behind the conflict, confronts her own fate, while Zouken Matou uses Sakura to try to fulfill his own desires. 'That's why...you'll need to grit your teeth, Sakura.' Will the young man’s wish reach her even as he challenges fate itself, battling against the rising tide? The Holy Grail War is coming to an end... The final battle is about to begin."
