A spectacular return to music videos by Japanese director Masashi Muto for Jonas Blue, in which the emotion of a crumbling love affair is represented through dance on the skyline and in the streets of Tokyo.

MASASHI MUTO:

"It was great to return to music videos and work with the artist Jonas Blue,
The dancers in the film represent the emotions felt by Jonas and the lead girl.

"I cast Shimizumash as a choreographer. He is still young, exciting and new, his cutting edge style, and all the dancers, created the innovative dance, which was more than I expected and made this film amazing.

"Finding some of the the locations here in Tokyo proved particularly challenging. Because there are many people and traffic it is hard to get a filming permission, plus I knew I had to find locations that captures Peoples expectations as the real Tokyo, which I think I have accomplished."
