Re:Turn – One Way Trip Weaves An Intricate, Terrifying Story
Re:Turn – One Way Trip focuses on a fun-loving party of five college friends who, after an especially tough previous year, all decide to pop out on a well-deserved post-graduation camping vacation as they begin to fully transition into their adult lives. Focusing on the main protagonist Saki, she awakens with a start in the middle of the night to discover that her four friends have all gone missing.
Leaving the campsite in an almost dreamlike state, Saki finds herself drawn to an abandoned train which for reasons she cannot fathom, appears to be waiting for her to board as its final passenger before departing for parts unknown.
As Saki attempts to locate each of her missing friends and delves into the horrific secrets of the mysterious train, the barriers between the past and present begin to break down, forcing her to confront an ancient evil as the very fabric of time itself begins to unravel while a moody and tense soundtrack deftly punctuates one moment of dread to the next.
