More than two decades after the Tokyo subway sarin attack by the doomsday cult Aum Shinrikyo, victim-turned-filmmaker Sakahara Atsushi embarks on an intimate and profound journey with Araki Hiroshi, the cult’s
PR director, to unveil the truth behind the tragedy that left an everlasting wound on his life. Journeying from the current cult headquarters to their hometown, Sakahara brings out a man whose psyche is broken by a vain belief in redemption, and exposes how this cult manipulates its members through mind control.
