Labeled as a “psychedelic melodrama” by director Gaspar Noé, Enter the Void follows drug dealer Oscar and his younger sister Linda through the neon-lit nightlife of Tokyo. During a police raid, Oscar gets hit by a bullet. His spirit, unable to leave his troubling sister behind, lives on to face the challenges and aftermath of his life. Wandering through the streets of Tokyo, the story becomes a hallucinatory journey derived from the Tibetan of Book of the Dead.
