Film description

A former detective, now immersed in addictions, finds out that his teenage daughter disappeared without trace. Even though he hasn't seen her in years, he suddenly finds a purpose in life: finding his only child. But Kanako was not a nice girl, and the traces she left behind are drawn with blood, tears, and powdered drugs in all the colors of the rainbow. This hyper-brutal tale is edited in a dizzying pace, saluting the classic Japanese exploitation cinema of Seijun Suzuki and Takashi Miike. Kanako compares herself to Alice, but the Wonderland she leads us through looks like a colorful antechamber of hell, drowning in the sounds of Japanese techno-pop.
