press release: Shiki Magata is a genius programmer who, as a child, killed her parents. After being found innocent due to her mental state, she disappeared from the public eye to open an isolated research lab on a remote island. Souhei Saikawa, a college professor, is obsessed with Magatas work, and, along with his student Moe Nishinosono and the rest of the Saikawa Research Lab, ends up planning a retreat to the island where Magata resides. Thus the stage is set for a series of mysterious instances. Screening permission and image courtesy of Sentai Filmworks, www.sentaifilmworks.com
