A psychopathicexecutive accidentally triggers a journalist’s ‘dark side’. They begin to connect over the Internet and make a complicated bond.
For a more in-depth synopsis:
Nomura is a good-looking and stylish man in his early 30s who lives a successful life in Tokyo, Japan. Girls are drawn to him, something he uses to his advantage as none of them realize the sinister truth behind the clean-cut façade.
Nomura has been leaving a legacy of violent murders that he immortalizes through videos posted on a publicwebsite. He thrives off of the fact that millions are witnessing his work through the virally spread videos.
Thousands of miles away from him, in a whole different world, lives Bayu, a disgraced investigative journalist living in a violent and unstable Jakarta, Indonesia. As Bayu’s life is hit by the nadir of failures, Nomura’s videos trigger his dark side as he starts to record his own brand of “justified” killings. Nomura’s seemingly confident and controlled charm starts to peel when his ego is wounded by the fact that Bayu’s videos have reached a significant number of followers that could rival his own.
Complicating matters further is Nomura’s bizarre attraction toward a traumatised young florist, Hisae. Bayu himself starts to sink deeper into a spiral of violence; obsessed with bringing down one of the country’s biggest and most corrupt politicians, but during his bloody rampage he doesn’t realize the repercussions toward his young daughter, Elly.
When the rivalry between Nomura and Bayu becomes an uncontrollable psychosis, the two of them must face each other in one of the most exhilarating film finales in years.
