Nomura is a good-looking and stylish man in his early thirties who lives a successful life in Tokyo, Japan. Girls are drawn to him, something he uses to his advantage as none of them realise the sinister truth behind the clean-cut faÃ§ade.
Nomura has been leaving a legacy of violent murders that he immortalises through video clips posted on a public video website. 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 Bayuâ€™s life is hit by the nadir of failures, Nomuraâ€™s videos trigger his dark side as he starts to record his own brand of â€œjustifiedâ€ killings. Nomuraâ€™s seemingly confident and controlled charm starts to peel when his ego is wounded by the fact that Bayuâ€™s videos have reached a significant numbers of followers that could rival his own.
Complicating matters further is Nomuraâ€™s bizarre attraction towards traumatised young florist Hisae. Bayu himself starts to sink deeper into a spiral of violence, obsessed with bringing down one of the countryâ€™s biggest and most corrupt politicians, but during his bloody rampage he doesnâ€™t realise the repercussions for 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.
