Buxton), a young Korean woman, forces her grief-stricken father (Allan Choi), a powerful, corrupt man, to seek retribution against those responsible for pushing her over the edge. He seeks out the ones with whom she was closely involved with in the short time leading up to her death: her boyfriend (Daniel Kennedy), her psychologist (Lauren Ash-Morgan) and a stranger (Quinn Knox) who claims not to have known her. With the help of his trusted henchman (Jung-Gi Min), he has them captured and tied up in an abandoned warehouse with the intention of interrogating them to find out the truth behind his daughter's suicide and killing the one he feels is to blame.

A great indie film that far surpasses its technical limitations
It would be easy to praise "Amiss" with the use of qualifiers (e.g. "excellent for an independent/micro-budget/first-time film") but that only serves to separate it from its aspirations. This isn't a film that is looking for excuses or limits, it's a film that is looking for something beyond genre or budget. And it often finds that, comfortably.
This is a film that could have just become another derivative crime drama, but instead the film crafts a mystery where overlapping narratives deepen character and widen the scope of an intimate story. This is a very assured piece of filmmaking from a pair of first-time feature directors without the eagerness or mimicry common to other debut films.
