Giri/Haji (Duty/Shame), a soulful thriller that explores the butterfly effect of one murder upon two very different cities sees celebrated Japanese stars Takehiro Hira and Yosuke Kubozuka leading the Japanese cast. They play Kenzo (Hira), and Yuto (Kubozuka), once devoted and now estranged brothers, driven to opposite sides of the world by the spiralling consequences of one violent split-second decision. They are joined by Masahiro Motoki, Yuko Nakamura, Aoi Okuyama, Mitsuko Oka, Togo Igawa, Katsuya and Yoshiki Minato. The UK cast sees Kelly Macdonald (The Victim, Boardwalk Empire, T2 Trainspotting), Justin Long (New Girl, Live Free or Die Hard), Will Sharpe (Flowers), Charlie Creed-Miles (Ripper Street, Peaky Blinders) and Tony Pitts (Jamestown, Peaky Blinders) line up across a bitter divide.
