When her young son Minato starts to behave strangely, his mother feels that there is something wrong.

But as the story unfolds through the eyes of mother, teacher and child, the truth gradually emerges.

“Kore-eda Hirokuzo captures the multi-layered drama, confusion and life-changing madness of early adolescence.” ~ James Verniere, Boston Herald
