Part of: The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2023

Directed by Hirayama Hideyuki 
Starring Kobayashi Satomi, Matsushige Yutaka, Hiraiwa Kami 

Middle-aged Fumi lives in a small country town. Spending time relaxing with like-minded work friends, hanging out with her best friend, a boy who is a little younger, or experiencing the impossible event of encountering a meteorite one day. Behind the mascarade of happiness and a joyful daily life, Fumi’s sorrow is sometimes hidden in plain sight. There is a reason why she lives alone.  

One day, Fumi meets a man and unexpectedly feels a premonition of love which she didn’t think would happen again. However, he himself has a secret.  


To celebrate the festival, ticket holders to the opening film Tsuyukusa can enter into a free raffle on arrival to win a selection of SUQQU Japanese luxury cosmetics and athletia beauty products.
