Sam (Andrew Garfield) is a disenchanted 33-year-old who discovers a mysterious woman, Sarah (Riley Keough), frolicking in his apartment’s swimming pool. When she vanishes, Sam embarks on a surreal quest across Los Angeles to decode the secret behind her disappearance, leading him into the murkiest depths of mystery, scandal, and conspiracy in the City of Angels.

From the dazzling imagination that brought you IT FOLLOWS comes a delirious neo-noir fever dream about one man’s search for the truth behind the mysterious crimes, murders, and disappearances in his East L.A. neighborhood.

“Oddly shaped, oddly profound, and full of fascinating (or, equally, frustrating) flaws, Mitchell’s idiosyncratic shaggy-dog story is destined to become a warts-and-all cult favourite.” (BFI, Michael Leader)
