It is Paris, 2054: A promising young scientist, Ilona Tasuiev, is abducted, and the massive health and beauty corporation she works for, Avalon, wants her found alive. Disillusioned police captain Karas (Daniel Craig) is put on the assignment, and soon unearths a puzzle of identity theft, drug connections, missing files and a crime committed long ago in the past – 2006. Rotoscoped in inky black-and-white, RENAISSANCE is a stylized neo-noir with its roots in sci-fi and mystery.
