Synopsis

The second film in the live-action trilogy based on Naoki Urasawa's sci-fi manga series. In 2015, 15 years after the near-destruction of the world, it has become a commonly-held belief that Kenji (Toshiaki Karasawa) and his friends were Satanic terrorists, while the shadowy cult leader known as Friend is worshipped as the saviour of the world. Kanna (Airi Taira), Kenji's niece, resents the false account given in the history textbooks at school. When she is forced to participate in the Friend Land re-education programme after being labelled anti-social, Kanna uncovers a string of clues pointing to the true identity of Friend, and makes a shocking revelation in The New Book of Prophecies.
