INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE
In the 1990s the Japanese government carries out experiments altering human evolution, producing two groups of babies inheriting unique mutant superpowers. Now reaching their twenties, the two groups use their abilities for different purposes: justice and chaos. However when they learn the truth of their origin they must band together to fight an apocalyptic destiny. Director Takahisa Zeze--who first came to fame in erotic cinema as one of the “Four Devils of Pink”--is a venerable auteur of independent and commercial genre films, here imbuing this sci-fi action thriller featuring Japan’s hottest young stars with his politicized themes of nomads on the margins of society in the vein of X-Men. Based on Takayoshi Honda’s best-selling novel Strayer’s Chronicle.
