Sho Miyake

A gritty coming-of-age drama depicting the lives of a hapless bookshop assistant (Emoto Tasuku), his co-worker (Ishibashi Shizuka), and housemate (Sometani Shota) as the carefree trio fight the sense of being adrift, hedonistically enjoying nightly escapades around their hometown of Hakodate. But their happy days hinge on a delicate balance.

Organised by the Japan Foundation with Major Support from Japan Airlines, Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, and Yakult, with Sponsorship in Kind from SUQQU.
