Short synopsis : When perfect high school student Kanako goes missing, her father's search leads him step by step into the hellish underworld of his daughter's secret life…

Long synopsis : When beautiful straight-A high school student Kanako goes missing, her mother asks ex-husband Fujishima - a drifting, irresponsible former cop - to find their daughter. He embarks on a desperate search in the hope of reuniting his ‘perfect family’ - by any means necessary. But as his investigation progresses, Fujishima starts to discover the darkness that lies behind his daughter’s impeccable façade. Clue by clue, revelation by revelation, he starts his descent into the hellish underworld of Kanako’s secret life… Tetsuya Nakashima follows his internationally-lauded box office hit “Confessions” (multiple Japan Academy Prize winner 2011; Best Asian Film, Hong Kong Film Awards 2011) with an intense, shocking, psychedelic journey into the world of city youngsters insatiably hungry for ever wilder, ever more delirious sensations…
