In 428: Shibuya Scrable, a kidnapping on the streets of Shibuya brings together a hot-blooded detective, hard-hitting journalist, former gang leader, the head researcher of a big pharma manufacturer and a part-timer stuck in cat costume for a series of events each more unexpected and outrageous than the last. Can they--or the city itself--make it through the day? With an unconventional palette consisting of text, live action stills, and video sequences to paint the narrative, 428 provides humor, uniqueness, and much intrigue that will entice you to reach all endings.
