In January 2118, Chief Inspector Akane Tsunemori of the Criminal Investigation Department receives a distressing report about an incident aboard a foreign vessel. The body of Professor Milicia Stronskaya has been discovered, and a formidable paramilitary group called the Peacebreakers is implicated. Their target: the renowned “Stronskaya Document,” containing groundbreaking research papers. Reunited with the former fugitive Shinya Kogami, Akane embarks on a harrowing case that surpasses all expectations. The contents of the Stronskaya Papers could potentially unravel the foundations of Japan’s government and even shake the core of the Sibyl System itself. It is within this untold tale that the missing link is unveiled.

Under the direction of Naoyoshi Shiotani, Production I.G spearheads the film, with TOHO handling distribution. Accompanying series writer Makoto Fukami as scriptwriter is Tow Ubukata, a valued addition to the franchise since Psycho-Pass 2.
