A recently widowed writer whose wife died in a bus crash impulsively offers to care for the children of a working man who lost his wife in the same accident, in this gently humorous drama.

The latest from Japanese writer-director Miwa Nishikawa (Dreams for Sale) is a tender, wise, and humorous exploration of the space between sentimental pretence and genuine feeling.

 

There will be 15-20 minutes of trailers and adverts before the screening (not included in duration).
