More about the PSYCHO-PASS franchise
The franchise revolves around the Sibyl System, an authoritarian regime that quantifies human personality. Sibyl’s analysis dictates all aspects of the citizens’ future. In exchange for control of Sibyl, the citizens enjoy a peaceful life.
With the recording and control of all kinds of mental states and tendencies, the standard by which an individual’s soul is measured is a value that people have come to call PSYCHO-PASS.
Wielding guns called Dominators that measure criminal potential, the detectives work closely with officers who hunt down would-be criminals before they break the law.
The young detective Akane Tsunemori, a member of the Criminal Investigation Department, and her partner, the enforcer Shinya Kogami, are faced with the question of how a just and perfect society can defend itself and sustain itself by a system that is possibly wrong.
PSYCHO-PASS was born as an original television anime project in 2012. Now, after ten years, comes the new film that will serve as a common thread between the PSYCHO-PASS film Sinners of the System Case 3: On the Other Side of Love and Hate and the third season of the television series PSYCHO-PASS. Finally the story will be told in full.

Meeting with Shinya Kogami, a former fugitive from the Criminal Investigation Department, Akane is faced with a case that soon exceeds her expectations. The Stronskaya Papers could reveal a truth that would shake the Japanese government, and even the Sibyl System, to its foundations.
