“An absorbing, exotic, well-paced thriller with moments of disconcerting realism and horror”
- Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

Set in Kobe in 1940 this intense thriller tells the story of a Japanese actress whose wealthy husband witnesses government-approved atrocities while on a business trip to Manchuria. A mysterious woman who returns with him from the trip is murdered and life-changing consequences await them as the couple plot to smuggle evidence of the incident out of Japan.  Meanwhile, the wife’s childhood friend, now a military policeman, is in pursuit.
