Alfred saw the murderer of his friend. But he suffers from face blindness and fails to identify the killer. Before he knows it, he is the main suspect in this stylish film noir.

Alfred finds his bosom friend Julia, murdered. He sees the killer, but he suffers from face blindness (prosopagnosia) and cannot remember his face. Since he found Julia, the police consider Alfred the main suspect. And what does his new love Laura have to do with it?
The broken Alfred tries to convince the detective of his innocence and his rare disorder. Julia was the only one who understood him. When proof is found of Alfred’s innocence, the whodunit shot in film-noir style gets a surprising twist.
