Giri/Haji is billed as a soulful thriller exploring the butterfly effect of a single murder across two cities. Set in Tokyo and London, the BBC describes it as a “dark, witty and daring examination of morality and redemption.”
Giri/Haji – a title that roughly translates as Duty/Shame – is a BBC/Netflix collaboration. The eight-part series began airing on BBC Two from Thursday 17 October, and is also available on Netflix internationally. The programme was cut at HyperActive’s Frith Street post-production facility.
