Set in the near-future, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin.

When she vanishes without a trace, Leo’s search for her takes him deep into the city’s seedy underbelly. A pair of wise-cracking American surgeons (Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux) are the only recurring clue and Leo is forced to take on this teeming underworld in order to find his love.
