    From writer Mamoru Oshii and animation studio Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell) comes this thought-provoking modern classic military drama directed by Hiroyuki Okiura (A Letter to Momo).

    In an imagined alternate history of 1950s Japan, Kazuki Fuse works as a member of a special police unit in the midst of riots and social disorder that plague the totalitarian society he serves. Bearing witness to the horrific suicide of a young girl in the midst of a police operation, Fuse is haunted by what he’s seen - a mental burden which sees him sent for re-evaluation by the police force for his inaction in the line of duty.

    As he struggles to come to terms with the horrors he’s witnessed, Fuse meets the sister of the girl whose life he saw snuffed out before him, bringing about an unlikely friendship that leaves him questioning not only what is right, but also the reality he sees before him. However, nothing here is quite what it seems, and he finds himself thrust into the midst of danger and conspiracy at every turn as events brought about by powerful forces spiral out of control around him.
