A stranger in the increasingly strange city of San Francisco, crime novelist Aki becomes romantically involved with an alluring but mysterious Japanese traveler. He abruptly disappears, leaving behind his suitcase and a lot of questions. Meanwhile, a small town sheriff from the outskirts of the city is driving home through the fog when he accidentally strikes a lone man who appears suddenly on the road. Before an investigation can begin, the man vanishes. A trail of clues lures Aki and the sheriff down sinister and seductive turns in this engrossing, genre-bending modern film noir.

Director’s Statement: Dave Boyle
A few years ago, I wrote an epic mystery project called Osaka Bay Blues about a Japanese privatedetective who uncovers a death cult masquerading as a multilevel marketing company. It was big, it was epic, and it was a very tough sell for a director who had never made a thriller before. My producer suggested that I write something in a similar vein but on a more limited scale. Somewhere along the line, Man From Reno became my passion project. I fell in love with the idea of telling a far-fetched crime story with a completely straight face.
