Synopsis

Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling. After the death of his father, his mother and ex-wife seem to be moving on while Ryota struggles to take back control of his life and to find a lasting place in the future of his young son – until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again.

HiroKazu Koreeda, a favourite of Keswick audiences (I Wish, KFF 2013; Like Father Like Son, KFF 2014; Our Little Sister, KFC 2015) is back with another gentle contemplation on family life.
