Years after the commander of an elite task force escapes a violent uprising by the corrupt brigade and his entire unit is imprisoned, one of his most dedicated pupils sets out to seek revenge in Ghost in the Shell director Mamoru Oshii's dark futuristic tale. When the Metropolitan Police's most fearsome unit -- the Kerberos -- became too powerful for the authorities to control, government officials demanded the group disarm, a command that was ultimately met with bloody resistance. Unlike the majority of his squad who were imprisoned following the uprising, Kerberos squad leader Koichi Todome escaped to start a new life. Released from prison after serving an excruciating three-year sentence, Todome's former squad member Inui vows to find his former commander at any cost. Upon achieving his goal, Inui is shocked to discover that his desperate search was not guided by his own free will, but by a higher power with an unknown motive.
