Directed by Chie Hayakawa 
Starring Chieko Baisho, Hayato Isomura, Stefanie Arianne, Yuumi Kawai, Taka Takao 

Chie Hayakawa’s thought-provoking drama imagines a world where a country with a low birth rate and dwindling workforce takes drastic measures. Set in a near dystopian future, the Japanese government introduce the radical Plan 75 – a voluntary euthanasia programme aimed at the over 75s.  

Michi, a single, elderly woman who can barely cover the costs of everyday life, finds difficulty in renting a home after she’s forced to retire from her cleaning job. But she has no desire to let go of life. Widower Yukio, at 78, feels like his time has come. It’s only when he encounters his nephew Hiromu at one of the processing centres for Plan 75 that he starts to doubt his decision.  

ThiHayakawa’s heart-breaking film forces us to think about how we care for the elderly in our society and the value we attach to life. A film that asks important questions about the type of society we want to live in.
