Atsuto is an incredibly successful game developer. As the CEO of his company, he tastes fame and fortune with the release of a popular online video game. But while he is a winner at the professional front, he is deeply troubled within. He feels empty and emotionally distant from his family.

After  his daughter is kidnapped one day, Atsuto turns to the police for help but the cops assigned make a serious error, which puts everyone in danger.

Now, Atsuto must team up with his wife, Michiru Narusawa (Mikako Tabe), to rescue their beloved daughter. They need to dodge the police and go after the kidnappers themselves, which is risky but unavoidable.

Kazunari Ninomiya’s previous credits include films like Letters from Iwo Jima (2006), Killing for the Prosecution (2018) and Ansatsu Kyôshitsu (2015).

Mikako Tabe has appeared in the film Piece of Cake (2015) and the TV series Watashi no Kaseifu Nagisa-San (2020) among others.
