Story: Sci-fi mystery directed and co-written by Duncan Jones. The story is set in Berlin forty years from today and centers on Leo Beiler (Skarsgard), a mute bartender as he searches for his missing girlfriend, Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh) the love of his life, his salvation, through dark streets, frenzied plazas, and the full spectrum of the cities shadow-dwellers.
As Leo’s search takes him deeper into the city’s underbelly he finds himself mixed up with Cactus Bill (Paul Rudd) and Duck (Justin Theroux), a pair of irreverent US army surgeons on a mission all their own, and Leo can’t tell if they can help, or who he should fear most.
