Synopsis
In the near future, Rina (YOSHINE Kyoko) lives as a wanderer, leaving her newborn child and home town at the age of seventeen. She then meets Ema Kuroda (TERAJIMA Shinobu), head of the BodyWerks division at a major cosmetics corporation Eternity. BodyWerks are actual dead body sculptures of the deceased, preserved as if they were living, a technology that is available to the public to overcome their loss of their loved ones. Meanwhile, Ema’s rebellious brother and brilliant scientist Amane (OKADA Masaki) begins research using this tech to stop aging among the living, granting them immortality. Through Ema and Amane, Rina gains new insights and embarks on a journey to become the first immortal in human history. But what are the consequences?

“Arc” is a haunting and stirring tale of the fundamental quest since the dawn of mankind – what it means to live.
