2011. 110 min., 35mm, in Japanese with English subtitles.
Directed by Natsuki Seta. With Aya Omasa, Shota Sometani, Masaki Miura.

“Post Traumatic Stress Disorder made cute.”
– Maggie Lee, The Hollywood Reporter

A couple of children go missing while a serial killer with a thing for stabbing young women is on the loose. The kidnapper? An impossibly pretty and quirky highschooler named “Ma-chan” (Aya Omasa). The killer? Her childhood friend, compulsive liar “Mi-kun” (Shota Sometani). Or maybe not. Pop teen romance, child sequestration and vicious torture ensue in Natsuki Seta’s twisted beyond-cute-and-evil love story, driven by rock-strong performances by the young (and rather good-looking) lads/leads.

Introduction and Q&A with Director Natsuki Seta and Actor Shota Sometani.
