While living an idyllic life she never felt entitled to, Grace /Minami Stanton is dealt a life or death decision that changes her destiny as well as her summoned young protege Miki Endo (Ruby Park), who is unsuspectingly threaded into her journey which will forever change the fate of both their lives.
It's a twisted, thought provoking journey where East meets West traveling from Japan to America through the mind of Grace Stanton and her perspective of this life and future lives, where our perceptions can dictate our actions in unique ways often misunderstood.
It stars Eric Roberts in one his best performances in years and the return of Winsor Harmon III as Michael Stanton. Ikumi Yoshimatsu is spectacular as the bewildered Grace Stanton in her breakout performance - which will leave you questioning your existence in this life or your next.
Starring Ikumi Yoshimatsu, Eric Roberts, Winsor Harmon, Ruby Park, Koji Niiya, Aki Aleong, Angelica Bridges, Tyler Ghyzel, Derek Warburton, Pol Atteu and Nikki Nikita. Award winning soundtrack created by Jakob Balogh, Martin Tillman and Keaton Simons.
