Giri/Haji (Duty/Shame) follows Kenzo Moru (Takehiro Hira), a Tokyo detective who must travel to London in search of his allegedly murderous brother Yuto (Yosuke Kubozuka), whom many believe to be already dead.

Accused of brutally killing the nephew of a Japanese mobster, Yuto’s actions threaten to unleash a gang war in Tokyo. In London, separated from any semblance of familiarity, Kenzo must navigate this strange new city to uncover whether his brother is guilty, or indeed still alive.
