Product Description:

In a film set in a grim, futuristic dystopia, director Shinji Aoyama (HELPLESS, TWO PUNKS) issues a philosophical rumination on the meaning of love in the face of death and fundamental solitude. Detective Saga (Ishibashi Ryo) is shot while working as a bodyguard, and his gun is stolen from him, only to be later used as the murder weapon in a spate of brutal killings. Terminally-ill genius Shimano (Suzuki Kazuma) is behind the violence, and his nihilism fuels destruction at every turn. The two men's paths mirror one another, as workaholic Saga is deserted by his wife, and searches for the meaning in relationships, while Shimano is out to show that love is proven only in death. Aoyama openly references Kurasawa's STRAY DOG, but turns in a much darker portrait of the human condition, while Ryo Ishibashi (THE GRUDGE) gives a characteristically topnotch performance.
