«Before We Vanish»
After going missing for several days, a man named Shinji mysteriously reappears, acting nothing like his former self. His relationship with his wife Narumi had been on the rocks, but now Shinji is calmer and kinder than before, which only serves to exasperate Narumi further. Shinji also has a bizarre new daily routine of strolling around the neighborhood and engaging strangers in deep, conceptual conversations with no apparent purpose. Elsewhere in town, a family is brutally murdered, and journalist Sakurai begins to investigate the odd circumstances of the killing. As an ominous mood spreads over an otherwise ordinary town, Sakurai and Narumi each try to understand what lies behind the spiraling chaos. One startling discovery leads to another, and they soon realize the psychological and spiritual essence of all humanity is at stake.

Der Film wird in der japanischen Originalversion mit englischen Untertiteln gezeigt.
