About

ALMOST RELATED Synopsis:
“Almost related” is an action packed, erotic comedy thriller that profiles the obscure intricacies of ancestral Japanese assassins. “Almost Related” highlights a series of bizarre murders occurring in the pursuit to acquire the Kuji Denjo Scrolls. A legacy of an ancient civilization known as the Weirding Clan, set in the backdrop of erotic settings and exotic vistas, offering a visual and psychological jolt.

“Almost Related” is flavored with multi-racial characters that come together in pursuit of a murderer, who’s on a quest to acquire the Sacred Scrolls. Three cops and a lady-reporter are bound by distrust, suspicion, love, hate, and a pair of handcuffs. In addition, a strange romance develops and sizzles in an incessant array of murders which culminates in consummated passion.
