From acclaimed director Ayumu Watanabe (Children of the Sea) comes a heartwarming and moving comedy-drama about an unconventional family, based on the popular novel by Kanako Nishi.

Nikuko is a big and jolly personality in an otherwise sleepy seaside town in northern Japan. Her daughter Kikuko is the opposite — quiet and pensive as she navigates the everyday social dramas of middle school. Everything changes for the mother-daughter duo when a shocking revelation from the past threatens to uproot their tender relationship.
