The film is based on the Japanese novel “Maria Beetle” and here is the synopsis, via Deadline: “Five assassins find themselves on a fast moving bullet train from Tokyo to Morioka with only a few stops in between. They discover their missions are not unrelated to each other. The question becomes who will make it off the train alive and what awaits them at the terminal station?”
