Ryota Nonomiya is a successful businessman, driven by money. When he learns, after six years, that his biological son was accidentally switched at birth with another child, he has to make life-changing decisions: to choose his true son or the boy he raised as his own, as well as being forced to question the values he has lived by. A prize winner at Cannes and from the director of I Wish, highly rated film in last year’s programme.
Mr. Hirokazu again creates a pair of irresistible charmers whose lives are, with increasing emotional violence, upended … by the very adults meant to take care of them.
