When her young son Minato starts to behave strangely, single mother Saori knows that there is something wrong.

Discovering that one of his teachers might be responsible, she storms into the school demanding answers.

But as the story unfolds through the eyes of mother, teacher and child, shocking truths begin to emerge.

A timely tale of family, false impressions, and, ultimately, hope, Hirokazu Kore-eda’s typically sensitive work features powerful performances by Ando Sakura, Tanaka Yuko and Nagayama Eita, and a sublime score from the Oscar-winning composer Ryuichi Sakamoto.
