Digital cinema presentation. An aimless, irresponsible cop is pulled into sharp focus by the sudden, inexplicable disappearance of his teenage daughter. His search for clues leads him into chilling detail of an alternate realities with whom he believed his loved one to actually be, but will stop at no cost as a father to find her and the truth.
The film is the latest from the internationally award-winning TETSUYA NAKASHIMA, adapted from the best-selling mystery novel of AKIO FUKAMACHI, where noir is evolved from the underground of yakuza clans and the detectives looking to crack them with an investigative pivot into unknown, darkened subcultures of today’s youth.
