Plot Summary

In a small town south of San Francisco, Sheriff Paul Del Moral (Pepe Serna) is driving home through the fog when he accidentally strikes a pedestrian, a lone Japanese man. However, before an investigation can take place the man disappears from the hospital without a trace. At the same time, Japanese mystery author Aki Akahori (Ayako Fujitani) takes a trip to San Francisco in order to escape the press tour for her latest book--a potboiler in her world famous "Inspector Takabe" series. Feeling lonely and vulnerable, she begins a romantic affair with a mysterious Japanese traveler from Reno (Kazuki Kitamura). Her new lover is charismatic and charming but abruptly disappears from the hotel, leaving behind his suitcase and a trail of questions... Written by Production

Goofs In this interesting movie there is a weird conflation of Asian names. When a sheriff from the fictional San Marco county, NV, goes in search of a JAPANESE suspect to the San Francisco's pet store Ocean Aquarium, he sees the large sign at the top of the entrance, written in both CHINESE and English. Later, the owner of the store is described as a woman with the KOREAN name "Ming Yung Kim." While the misguided view of 'all Asians look alike' is common in many occidental movies, this conflation is very curious in a movie partly funded by Japanese executive producers. Further, a scene inside the pet store displays rather prominently an Argentine flag on a desk-- light-blue/white/light-blue (with a sun in the white horizontal bar). Although this may appear to be a clue, it is not; according to Justin, the actual owner of Ocean Aquarium, it was given to him by an Argentinean friend and he keeps it there. See more »
