Will (Winston Duke) spends his days in a remote outpost watching the live Point of View (POV) on TVs of people going about their lives, until one subject perishes, leaving a vacancy for a new life on earth. Soon, several candidates — unborn souls — arrive at Will's to undergo tests determining their fitness, facing oblivion when they are deemed unsuitable. But Will soon faces his own existential challenge in the form of free-spirited Emma (Zazie Beetz), a candidate who is not like the others, forcing him to turn within and reckon with his own tumultuous past. Fueled by unexpected power, he discovers a bold new path forward in his own life.
Making his feature-film debut after a series of highly acclaimed and award-winning short films and music videos, Japanese Brazilian director Edson Oda delivers a heartfelt and meditative vision of human souls in limbo, aching to be born against unimaginable odds, yet hindered by forces beyond their will...

“At the risk of overselling Edson Oda’s ultra-original, meaning-of-life directorial debut, there’s a big difference between “Nine Days” and pretty much every other film ever made. “Nine Days” invites you to re-consider your entire worldview.” – Variety
“One of the more striking directorial debuts of recent years...Stunningly crafted, a special, one-of-a-kind film that announces a significant talent." ”– The Hollywood Reporter
“Winston Duke is incredible...The breakout “Black Panther” star showed his range in “Us” almost a year ago, but what he accomplishes here is on a completely different level.”–The Playlist
"Wholly original. A rich, speculative drama on life and destiny." The Boston Globe
"A standout directorial debut by Edson Oda." Screendaily
