16 year old Yuu and his mom live together. But his step dad who is about to marry his mom intervenes between Yuu and mom, hanging down darkness to young Yuu. The story focuses on how unruly relationships of the adults hurt the child and build rage inside their minds. It is based on the true experience of the director.
Director Ishii Tatsuya was only 19 when he directed the film, but he made such a simple and mature work. The film portrays adults try to downplay and speak ill of the life of a child living under their umbrella and it depicts the reality of their hard life. Still, this title does not sound sarcastic, thanks to the power of direction. The film leaves an exceptional trail of space and time that helps one realize the sense of being alive. [KIM Youngjin]
