Troubled ex-detective Akikazu is on the hunt for his missing teenage daughter, Kanako. What he discovers in his search is a harrowing web of depravity—surrounding both Kanako and himself. As Akizaku stumbles along a shocking trail of drugs, sex and violence, he finds himself woefully unprepared.

MUBI's take

A blood-soaked descent into the shadowy underworld of Tokyo, Tetsuya Nakashima’s time-jumping parable is splattered with carnality and violence. In a world where youthful innocence exists only to be corrupted, Kôji Yakusho (Cure) excels in the role of a guilt-stricken father chasing after a mirage.
