Akiko, a Tokyo student who moonlights as a call girl, is dispatched to a new client in the suburbs, and is surprised to find the elderly Takashi, a committed academic, constantly distracted by workrelated phone calls. The lonely widower seems far more interested
in playing house than having sex and the young woman soon falls asleep. The next day, when the two encounter Akiko’s volatile boyfriend, they adopt the assumption that he is actually her grandfather. As the three settle into their new roles, Takashi finds himself becoming the protector that Akiko so desperately needs.

Director: Abbas Kiarostami
