Synopsis

Young Minato's behaviour is becoming increasingly worrying. His mother, who has been raising him alone since her husband's death, decides to confront the teaching staff at her son's school. Everything seems to indicate that Minato's teacher is responsible for the boy's problems. But as the story unfolds, through the eyes of the mother, the teacher and the child, the truth turns out to be much more complex and nuanced than anyone initially expected....  A story that mirrors the divide that is emerging today between people, countries and communities around the world.
 
Queer Palm at Cannes, and also the last film on which the great musician Riuchi Sakamaoto, who died a few months ago, collaborated.
