They already walk among us and their plans for human extinction are afoot
Phase 1: Information Gathering. Three aliens seize the bodies and memories of three people in the outskirts of Tokyo in order to gather intel on humans. They must decode our language, by connecting words to concepts they symbolise, before they can start an invasion.
In an age overflowing with novelty news and indifference, nobody notices the aliens amongst them. Graphic designer Narumi (Masami Nagasawa, Our Little Sister) believes her husband Shinji (Ryuhei Matsuda; My Uncle, The Great Passage, The Raid 2) went missing because of early on-set alzheimer’s and tabloid journalist Sakurai (Hiroki Hasegawa; Shin Godzilla, A Double Life) thinks he’s just following two murderous teenagers, Tachibana and Amano. However, Shinji, Tachibana and Amano, are all alien invaders walking in plain sight.
With the fate of the Earth in their hands, what choices will Narumi and Sakurai make before humanity is extinguished? Will the aliens gather enough information to launch an invasion?
